Samuel L. Jackson,
Director Lynch has stated on his podcast, that he wanted to shoot in Serbia "because he wanted shoot somewhere foreign for a few months, like big time directors always claim to want to do", even though the actual reason was that it's cheaper to shoot in Serbia. See more »
Everly stabs Taiko with a katana : on the side view, we see the blade out at the center of his back (from up to down).
On the back view, the blade is exactly in the heart.
Also, when she's cutting him in half, it's the right part of the body, despite the fact the blade was in his heart. See more »
So far the reviews on here are pretty bad. I mean someone rated it a 1???
It seems most of them were either annoyed because Salma didn't get naked or because they were obviously expecting a totally different film than what they saw.
There's nothing new here, we've seen it all before, it's fairly low budget, there's going to be no Oscars for acting no brilliant script or ground breaking special FX but that doesn't make it a bad film.
There's a few reviews stating the many plot holes or how unrealistic it was but I think they just missed the whole concept of the film. I don't think at any point it was made to be realistic or a serious action film.
The plot is simple, the action is over the top as well as the characters and there's some subtle humor mixed in, it's basically a popcorn movie. If you go to see it expecting anything more you will be disappointed.
It's not a film I would watch more than once but it kept me entertained until the end and that's all a film like this needs to do.
