Far Better Than Some Would Lead You To Believe!
1 May 2005 | by andyspal56See all my reviews

Just finished watching this movie yesterday afternoon and was impressed enough with it to look for reviews on Google. This action movie definitely did not treat one side as all good, the other as all bad. It did, however deal with good and bad people on both sides. I also enjoyed the love story in this movie, not hokey as in so many movies, and could have realistically taken place; not something just thrown in. I would say that this was more of a thinking person's action film! When a certain's assassin's motives were revealed, even he was more understandable. Also, two foes came to somewhat soften their hatred towards one another. Watched the Blade series this weekend and thought it was very good; much better than the Matrix movies. What's one man's junk, is another man's treasure!
