An entertaining action film, starting after the first 30 min. Before that there's not much going on, just some nice island shots and rather uninteresting scenes that are supposed to serve as some sort of introduction for the "heros" later motives, I suppose.
But then the real "story" (very basic) kicks in and along with it the action. Quite a couple of brutal knife killings and shootouts from there.
Some compare it to brilliant The Raid films as I read, but that's nonsense.
While the knife action might be similar in brutality, the fight scenes are not not as many and they surely are not as well choreographed, definitely no Iko Uwais skills here.
The takeouts are executed quickly and with lots of blood, tho.
Pretty entertaining, if you like a high bodycount.
