In my personal opinion this movie is a much more realistic version of any "American style" "secret agent" movie. It has action, never gets boring, it has fights and explosions. What differs the main character most from let's say a "transporter", is that the movie is not giving him one of the usual stereotypes of "bad stories from the past". In fact the movie does start with quite a shocking moment, something one rarely seen in other action movies, and later on in the movie there is actually a moment of thought in terms of "even agents are under law". So if you once in a while get bored by transporter 3 and would like to see an unknown but credible face on screen, I think you will like this movie.
