Could Have Been Much Better
15 March 2008 | by Scars_RemainSee all my reviews

I just got finished watching Golgo 13: Queen Bee and I'm pretty let down. It's a fun movie with some great scenes but it is no where near as good as it's amazing predecessor. I feel like it could have had a lot more and I waited for it to get better but it never seemed to get to the level it could have.

There is some great gore and the story is interesting enough to keep the viewer watching but it doesn't do much else. I think my biggest problem was that the story barely focused on Golgo 13 at all. It seems a bit silly to me because it's named after the guy. Instead, it focuses a lot more on the Queen Bee's character. But other than those cons, it has some really fun action sequences that fans of the first film will be pleased with. See it if you liked The Professional but don't expect a movie that is equal.
