You might be inclined to read the reviews and get a conclusion from them. Please, don't.

First of all, because within the movie lies an idea that you won't be able to guess from other users and it would be best it you took the time to watch the movie.

Rambo ? No. Terminator ? No. Guess again. This time is about a man who, consciously or unconsciously, tries to undo something done by the cruel history. That is the one only hint. Scouts' honor !

Fairly well acted (could've been better) and an interesting rhythm of the script.

On the other hand, the ending is kind of expected, but at the same time the more dramatic.
