Did You Know?


Luc, a professional assassin, kills 3 men early in the film. Like all good killers she wore a pair of plastic surgical gloves for the occasion. The problem is after the shooting is over she proceeds to remove the gloves and leave them behind as she escapes via a nearby fire exit - leaving a perfectly good set of finger prints on the door knob.

I've seen a lot, but this one takes the price, and big time!
24 February 2004 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

First off, to blow off some steam (I've just paused halfway through the movie), I was extremely dissapointed about the part where they trace the sender of an e- mail, and it's THE MOST STUPID THING I'VE EVER, EVER SEEN!!!! Graphical code - My hiney! They don't know s-t about WTF they're talking about! To kick my self to talk about the movie in general:

The acting is somewhat flawed, but I'm guessing it's nog because of the actors, in fact, it's the directors job (And casting- crew) to direct the acters to do a fine job, clearly, this was NOT the case in this flick....

For instance, the scene where the "cops" plants the evidence, the script should have contained another row saying "badguy wearing gloves.

I think I'm blessed with the ability to see movie- flaws, I'm not bragging, but after about 2 minutes into the movie I saw that the lighting, the colors, and cast was out of alignment. Then there was the constant repeatings of scenes, like kicks and blows. Just like commercial they just had to show it aleast 3 times just to let the viewer know that "That's what you saw" - BAD EDITING! Ok, so I'm not a movie criticist, but I do see a heck of a lot of movies. Also I'm somewhat technical and so, and I know what a computer does, and does not! (Eg. The Mangler 2.0 to state the obvious!) Also, about the cloak & dagger shown througout the movie, one can tell that the filmcrew have not done anything like this before, or seen any of the more professional movies.

For instance. The girl Johanna, wrong character for this role, she should have been more cold, not so friendly, and most of all, not so blueeyed. Like when her friend Luc gets killed, she brakes apart. If she's been a professional killer, she shouldn't have shown that much sentimentallity.

And then the boyfriend she's having.. What a joke, an artist picking up a gun like if it was attached to him from birth. =0/

Please notice that I tend to rabble abit as I'm quite tired, and annoyed due to the film.

Do not (NOT!) rent or even buy this film, it's a waste of talents, and of course, your beloved money you could spend on better stuff that this crapper! Oh, yeah, my personal rating would be 2 of 10 (The Mangler 2.0 was dreadful, and only worth 1, just to compare another movie, not related to this one in any kind!)

I wish I was consulted when it comes to technical stuff... I'd be a lot better than most others out there...
