I have to say that I was sadly disappointed by this movie. Not that my expcectations were very high to begin with but I felt that the basic premise of the story actually had good potential. Unfortunately that potential was squandered.
As a semi-brainless action film with some good special effects it was entertaining. But the movie repeatedly fell into the pitraps cliches and stereotypes. An australian gang leader living in the subways named "Funktastic" with the bad-girl girlfriend? You've got to be kidding. It almost felt like too many producers had their greedy fingers in the pie and the whole thing got watered down to the lowest common denominator.
If they had have taken the time to go beyond the cliches and stereotypes and write some interesting dialog and supporting characters it could have been good.
