I disagree with the previous comment on all counts. First of all I like how the movie is shot, particularly the camera angles for the action scenes. It's a welcome change from the Hong Kong cliché which makes an emphasis on specific moves. Antikiller is not an instructional Martial Art video. But it's close-ups in my opinion more truly capture the atmosphere of the fight - this is what you'd see if you were in the midst of the action.
And secondly I am convinced that the movie movie is clearly anti-terrorist - it obviously portrays terrorists as criminals and savages. Yet it tries, and in my opinion succeeds, to paint the objective picture - there are different kinds of people in every group. There are corrupt police, patriotic thieves and non-criminal Chechens - fighters for idea. This is life. And if somebody expects good guys to win every fight - they should be watching cartoons. Personally I found the "happy end" in which both the main hero and his wife survive, to be the least realistic part of the whole move. I think that script writers needed it for a sequel.
