User Reviews

Entertaining, unpretentious action movie. No more, no less.
20 February 2019 | by meelaleksSee all my reviews

Before watching I had no expectations. Luckely. If I had I might have given it a worse rating. It is what it is: a lower (not low) budget action movie. As such its good enough. Sure, the plot is thin. Sure, the dialogues are predictable. Sure, the bad guys have the obligated looks and accent. Sure, it has flaws. But it delivers what you might hope for: speed, action, a car chase, gunfights, a good looking heroin (Olga Kurylenko's acting was not half as bad as I feared) It even has some suspence, a few twists and as a bonus a small role for Morgan Freeman. It will not win prices but it's a fun movie to watch on a rainy day.
