Most people I've asked have a love - hate relationship with this movie.
"It is a good movie but it is not a JS level type of movie". So when I've decided to finally see it, my expectations were rather low.
Yet, this proved to be an amazing movie, maybe one of his best. Yes, it doesn't have the humor of Crank and he fights far less in this one, compared to his others. But it is a comedy with dark undertones and a moral in the story.
It is different. I can't say that it will leave you thinking for days or hours or even minutes but it is not mindless action as some of his previous movies were.
So yes, it is a fast paced action movie that is worth watching.
