Honestly, I thought I was going to have an epileptic fit from the fight scenes. No joke - in a one minute fight scene there are almost 50 cuts. Can you imagine Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan or Tony Jaa doing that? No way. The point of an action film is to highlight cool action scenes. You can't do that when this Michael Bay-influenced rapid fire editing.
I liked the first two entries in this series, but this one is really, really bad. I think the blame lies with director Olivier Megaton who seems to not know how to shoot or edit a fight scene to save his life. Seriously, why hire Corey Yuen to do your fight scenes if you are going to cut ever half second? Just a complete mess. The sad part is that nearly 60% of the movie is edited like this. Honestly, do we need three flash cuts when you are just showing a picture on a passport?
