When Ethan (Kevin Costner) enters a tattoo parlor, one can see the nude back of a girl with a very mexican "Lady of Guadalupe/Holy Death" tattoo. This mystery girl is also seen tattooing Mr. Jang (Min-sik Choi) in the movie Lucy (2014). Both films were written by Luc Besson. The tattoed model is uncredited in both films. See more »
Elevators do not just drop when a cable connection is either lost or otherwise interrupted by shooting; the safety system invented by Elisha Graves Otis in 1852 locks the car in place and prevents it from falling. See more »
Mr. Director, this is Agent Vivien Delay.
For the last ten years the Central Intelligence Agency has been after Wolfgang Braun.
As you know, we have no positive identification of what the Wolf looks like. What we do know is he's a former German national who sells atomic material to terrorists all over the world.
Intelligence confirms that a transaction is to take place next week in Belgrade.

How in the world did this movie get green lighted??? Like most modern movies made today, this is just as bad as most of them. The plot doesn't make sense, nor the acting. But worse are the improbabilities. At least TRY to make a movie of this ilk somewhat believable. I guess this is what they call a fantasy, science fiction type movie....but it doesn't work.
Despite all the gun shooting everywhere and the typical car chases, WHERE ARE THE POLICE?? Despite all the punches, falls and cars going over bridges and landing upside down, TWO BAD GUYS GET UP AND RUN TO THE METRO TO CATCH THE KEVIN COSTNER CHARACTER. What? Keven himself gets all punched, bruised and beaten, yet in the next scene, THE SAME NIGHT, two of them are dressed up and not a scratch or buries on them!!! WHAT? If this were a cartoon, maybe, but this is supposed to be realistic. Or as I stated above, a fantasy. Then it would work, although I don't think this was meant to be a sic-fi or fantasy. I really don't know what the writers had in mind for this miss-mash. Even the acting suffers, but of course since the actors have nothing to act.
Why can't more movies be made like a good old fashion thriller like Hitchcock used to make or a good Agatha Christie movie. I guess movies like that are passé'...what a pity.
