“Enjoyable and stylish. Unfortunately itu0026#39;s pretty much more of the same action fare weu0026#39;ve seen hundreds of times before. Most major plot points were fairly predicable and the u0026#39;twistu0026#39; near the end you can see coming a mile away.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe car chase at the beginning showed promise by offering a slightly new perspective but the sequence didnu0026#39;t last too long.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe most engaging part of the movie was the relationship between Kate and Ani and was enough to fuel interest and keep emotionally attached to the story.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI understand itu0026#39;s primarily an action flick, but I would have enjoyed just a little more depth and to have the thematic emblems dealt with more fully, but overall still an engaging film despite itu0026#39;s lack of originality. That said the action sequences were well done and I thought the cinematography was above par. And there were a few little nice idiosyncratic touches that enhanced the film, especially if you understand a little about Asian culture.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGo into the film without expectations of finding anything new or fresh and I think youu0026#39;ll thoroughly enjoy the film. I guess it does exactly what it says on the tin.”
