Not what I was expecting
6 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I gave this movie the high rating I did because of how much it surprised me. I just randomly picked it to watch because I was in the mood for a mindless action film. This was not that movie. There are a lot of "mindless" action elements in this film, but they all serve a purpose. The character development relies both on exposition and camera work. I'm not sure how I'd rank the acting, but I would definitely say it was sufficient for the story. This does not contain anything resembling conventional Hollywood relationships. It is not a happy go lucky movie. It is a movie that creates a dynamic relationship on screen. I do recommend it, but only if you're someone who can enjoy a movie that lacks a Hollywood ending.
