There are only two reviews, so I'll add another. I did try at first to stay with this, but the plot and character motivations were always a mystery. Things seemed to happen for no reason and because I never cared about either of the main characters, my attention soon started to wander.
There's nothing unusual or interesting here, a sequence of stock action situations, reasonably staged in themselves. I'm not a fan of action for action's sake, and those who are will doubtless enjoy this more than I did. I can't praise the acting because they were unable to engage me. I watched for about an hour then gave up, so I can't comment on the ending.
