I loved this movie. It got going really quickly, and there was plenty of edge seat action throughout, shot brilliantly, with great locations, and the quieter moments were filled with intense anxiety or dark menace, also done superbly, with great acting, and well cast. There are other sniper movies, but I can't remember seeing one in this context, as an element to a heist or to disrupt police actions. But there is greater originality than that, which I'd love to reveal but that would be a spoiler. The story is complex, and the characters deep. The lead may be familiar to others who have seen the supreme French spy drama The Bureau, and interestingly, plays a very similar role, that of the silent type, which he does with aplomb. I would have liked the movie to have run a little longer, to allow for more of the originality. It needed that to develop more dread, horror and danger. If any movie-makers read this, please take that on board if ever there is to be an English version. Loved the direction, colour and style of this movie. It was truly professional. Terrific!
