Can I have a bar of chocolate?
[sees someone familiar]
Hey, I know you.
[really tough and mean]
No, you don't! Don't look at me! You don't know me!

Everything was great. Can't say anything bad about it
Great story and well executed. Acting was all I could expect. Action was great too.
I read someone didn't like the happy ending. At least me, I do like happy endings, or at least feel that everything make sense, or have a reason to tell the story. Was satisfactory ending. All I can ask for.
I try to be very strict on movies. Want realism, action with meaning, interesting stories with good execution, good editing, good effects, good acting, etc. On this case I just can't say anything bad about this movie. Maybe a little sad, but you can expect that from a ransom.
If you want drama and action, you should like it. Maybe not the best movie, but very satisfactory to watch. I watch it 3 times, and still plan watch it again in the future.
