A decent entertainment, disappointing noir attempt
29 August 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Although the initial minutes of the movie very much put you in a film noir atmosphere, I felt the plot quickly shyed away from that and turned into a rather disappointing action movie. Basically the movie tries to do both noir and action at once, and although both genres aren't exactly mutually exclusive, there is obviously a limited specter of action that the noir atmosphere can tolerate without being ruined. I felt like that specter was definitely breached here.

The plot has a few interesting twists although a lot of short cuts are used to move it along, leaving a sour taste behind. However it also has predictable and very disappointing choices scattered throughout, which is harder to forgive.

As for the animation per se, I didn't put too much thought into it, it felt alright although it was far from stellar.

So basically this is an okay movie, I wouldn't run away nor towards it, if you happen to pass by it on a boring night and the right mood, go for it.
