Don't waste your time on this one
29 August 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Everything about this movie screams "film student project". The script is terribly weak: dialogue is unconvincing, and the story meanders so much so that by the end of it I had no idea what was happening.

There is no consistency with back stories, and no convincing motivations for people's actions. Why are super secret assassins posing for selfies on the riverside with ninja swords in their hands and sending them to one another? The reason one assassin gives her assassin ex-boyfriend's number to a reporter (John) who is following up on rivalry killings? "I thought you could use someone outside of the gang to talk to."

Yes. The best candidate she could think of was a reporter. For him to talk to about their (illegal) assassin problems. Brilliant.

But wait, it doesn't end there. When assassin dude doesn't seem overly interested (not that he seems super interested about anything at all in this movie), she really makes her case with:

ASSASSIN CHICK: He (John) was suspended from the paper because he almost put someone in a coma.

ASSASSIN DUDE: The plot thickens.

Quality writing.

The fighting scenes are achingly staged, the story makes no sense, and no-one appears to be able to act. Although to be fair, acting convincingly must have been a challenge given the crap material they were given.

Looking forward to a review of this one from YourMovieSucksDOTorg.
