Good Idea, But Lazy Writing
18 January 2019 | by tabunoSee all my reviews

2 January 2012. It's really too bad that this Bourne Identity (2002) or even U.S. Marshals (1998) themed movie didn't have a scriptwriter with more interest and serious commitment into developing the solid espionage plot into something really classy. The serious tone of the violence and the stark colors of movie really are impressive, even the martial art sequences are compelling. Unfortunately, the integrity and the intelligence of most of the movie is lacking. The lack of use of even what Die Hard (1988) counter espionage techniques is disappointing especially the taking advantage of the electronic opportunities. There is way too much just simply shooting for shooting sake that eventually gets monotonous and some kills are simply just almost accidental, dumb luck, and so many die out so soon as to make the second half of the film somewhat unbalanced for a typical action thriller movie, and a poor attempt to explain or sometimes avoid more convoluted plot points by just taking the easy way out. The movie seems to border of the melodramatic and some of the dialogue two-dimensional, even though with the female assassin there was so much opportunity. The initial set up is decent enough, if somewhat predictable as to the ending even at the beginning of the movie, telegraphing its supposed surprise. Even the cautionary suspicion towards the end of the movie that would have given the movie an even greater edge seems to have been lost. Nevertheless, there is an element of constant rage that is often missing in such action thrillers, yet it seems to have overtaken the rational logic of the situation making the scenes towards the end more disgusting then exciting and entertaining. The ending scenes are interesting and one can see the attempt at elevating them to a higher plane, but they stall in the effort, though at least left out the traditional awe and admiration climax of ordinary endings. The local SWAT which is almost always a strong presence in such movies seems to be mysteriously underdeveloped. It's too bad that Wesley Snipes didn't have more to work with, the movie had the potential to be a solid hit.
