Having seen a trailer and looking it up here, i hesitated first to go and see it but i finally did and was not disappointed. The story may seem a little thin but the actors and the special effects is not bad for independent film. Ben Kingsley is excellent and you could not tell that he's past 70. Many of the others acts well and i see no overacting. The pace is changing throughout the film and i enjoyed it. I found it entertaining with a good mix of action and humor and not relying too much on special effects but it does feel a bit short at times. I hope this film gets another chance at the video store since i think it deserves more credit then it got on the cinema. It's good acting and good filming locations. Worth watching.
