Somebody's teenage son wrote a screenplay
5 October 2011 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Well, the son wrote a first draft; writing is rewriting, after all.

It's a pity because had someone competent worked on this project, it could have been a pretty fine film. Instead, we're treated to terrible writing the actors can't disguise and fights which will eventually prompt the viewer to switch to x2 or x4 forward speed as opposed to turning this otherwise steaming pile of turd off.

Plot holes and cartoon-like characters aside (someone else mentioned it was based on a comic, which I suppose explains that aspect at least), there exists the potential for a good, brutal action-drama, but unfortunately, the utterly juvenile and painfully unwatchable delivery of the final output makes it easy to over-look this.

Actually, I'd be surprised if most viewers managed to get through this even at x16 speed. A very bad film indeed.
