Good surprise
12 November 2014 | by armellehbSee all my reviews

I had a real pleasure watching this movie... It's actually a good surprise for me. The story takes us to different and surprising places during the whole movie. The characters are well written and the actors make a good performance. The cast is international and brings an interesting variety of acting. The action is well directed and martial arts sequences are amazing with every time a different place with different opponents always extraordinary choreographed. The director succeeds to mix many genres and each of them has it own "Momentum". Some shots of Hong Kong are outstanding as well as the "special one" in the bunker. I look forward to watching the sequel. A must see action film
