Nothing New
24 March 2013 | by (Minneapolis, USA) – See all my reviews

The revenge movie!!! Very few things are more done, done, overdone then this tired theme. As understandable desire for vengeance is, it hardly makes any difference. And, so it goes... Another bullet opera, splashes of blood, heaps of corpses for the video game crowd. It doesn't stir up any emotion except notorious adrenaline. But, I guess, who needs emotions, they just slow you down and force you to deal with pesky things, like life and essence of existence. And there is Johnny Hallyday, former rock star. The excessive plastic surgery makes him look like a demented lizard. How can looking like a different species be better than just being old, as nature intended? Oh, I forgot, that's why we have adrenaline - to prevent any logical thought process.
