What a dumb, lame and clueless crap
26 July 2016 | by BasicLogicSee all my reviews

I can't believe this lame, clueless dumb movie could get 7.1 stars rating. We didn't see how this young guy was qualified for a member of a clueless group of agents. He was qualified just by his dumb clueless persistence in a futile assembly of jigsaw puzzle, just mindlessly lost himself trying to figure out how to make it come together. A guy with limited intelligence would have already realized that jigsaw puzzle could not match and patch together long time ago. So just by his stupid persistence, he was qualified for being one of the secret agents? Give me a break, will you? Then they did a clueless mission in Cerbia, and by his naive stupidity and failed to follow instructions, two agents were killed.

Then the weirdest thing happened and he was tortured, again, clueless as we the viewers and himself. The torturer snapped and cut open his left arm, and then cut and disintegrated two tendons and nerves of his two fingers inside his left lower arm. For what? And why they wanted to torture him to get answer instead of just killed him? Again, so God-awful clueless.

Then this stupid and stubborn young guy just tried to put another another clueless jigsaw puzzle together by himself without any resource. His severe injured left hand seemed miraculously healed, I was so amazed to see that an hand suffered so much damages yet it seemed this guy got no pain at all. I was so clueless and just couldn't help but gave up this clueless viewing experience.

It reminded me "Ronin": so many people involved and tried to get that clueless attache suitcase, yet from the very beginning to the very end, that mysterious attache suitcase never had been logically explained what's in it.

This so-called "Rogue Agent" is a torture to watch like pain in the arse, you felt the pain, but you just couldn't touch or reach it, because it's so clueless to allow you to pin point the location where the pain coming from.
