John Wick ripoff (tho it's based on a graphic novel). Dialog seems horrible at least based on the trailer... But I'll definitely check this out.

Ok, I'll get the negatives out of the way. And I actually use negative loosely.

There is JUST enough plot to make a movie. The story is thin but you get the idea of whats going on and you can piece together everything yourself.

Winnick, while hot, cannot act and should stop being in things unless she is doing action scenes (she did zero in this movie).

Ok, negatives out of the way. This was actually really enjoyable movie. I mean it was fucking weird at times but it was solid. Great pacing, I was never bored.

The action was BRUTAL at times...like cringe brutal. Mikkelsen has a tremendous onscreen presence. I'd love to see him in more action roles.

Also, soundtrack was awesome and that was because it was done by Deadmau5.

AND, it leaves a huge door open for a sequel....like, gaping.

I recommend checking this out.

Oh! I totally got the twist wrong....which was a bit surprising to me because I'm fairly good at ruining movies for myself by jumping ahead and trying to figure out the endgame.

I liked it...

I get the John Wick reference, but I would say it's more like a gory Guy Ritchie movie.

I saw this recommended on another site as well. Yet on Rotten Tomatoes it only has a 21% so I didn't give the recommendation too much credit. But seems it is worth watching.

It was OK. Sort of old school with how he's so invincible and everyone waits around for him to kill them.

I was entertained, despite a mortal being apparently impossible to kill. And somehow criminal masterminds always end up hiring guards/goons that have terrible reflexes, wait 20 seconds to react, or decide that despite having a gun, they will not use a gun and then get it taken and killed. :D
