Jack Devlin is a bodyguard for high paying clients and his latest assignment has him protecting a supermodel from a killer. Deviln's weakness is fear of the color white (yes you read that correctly) and this killer he is after knows that proving his capture to be difficult.
This film is John Woo from beginning to end and any fan of the action director will instantly recognize that. Slow motion, dual handguns, fairly relentless action, and a strong focus on characterization. The problem is the film is boring. And I mean BORING. Main reason being that while it contains many traditional Woo elements, they are presented on such a small scale and so underdeveloped that it is almost sad to acknowledge that this is John Woo action picture when it actually feels like a third-rate wannabe copycat of a John Woo action picture.
With almost every scene you'll just be going "that's it?" Unforetunately yes, that is it. 4/10
Rated R despite limited violence
