You get what you paid for. All out action.
27 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now I know what you guys want. You want reviews that bash the living turd out of this movie. But I'm afraid I can't do that for you. You think you know what you're going to get with this movie. Judging by Slater's face in the cover art you immediately think "Oh god, another piece of crap." But oh no. This movie blew me away, the sheer raw emotion portrayed by Slater is moving. You really get a feel for how stunned and in awe when he was re united with his wife after 2 years. "You were 'sposed to be dead" 10/10. I gave this a 9 cause I want the honour of my 10 to only go to a class film like Legion. S - Stupendous. L - Lingering in my mind. A - All out action. T - Tantalisingly great. E - Electrifying R - Raw emotion.
