With some editing and FX retouching it could pass as a Hollywood blockbuster
This action and FX packed movie was made in Kazakhstan; it is the first time I see a movie of that origin. I do not believe this movie had a budget that could compare to Hollywood (or a Hong Kong ) film; however the action is continuous and the digital sequences (perhaps needing some retouching) are spectacular enough.
Sadly the editing and some incomplete scenes give away the limited budget; it is far more spectacular that any recent B movie.
The acting is not that bad; but the dubbing for the American market does not help. It even has an aging Armand Assante and very beautiful Kristanna Loken doing some important but secundary parts both really correct.
A more worked script should had helped; but in any case is a B+ movie.
