Review for Assassin x aka The Chemist
25 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Lackluster action movie with terrible direction. The overuse of slow mo, poor editing, flash backs you don't realize are flashbacks. Horrible acting , the female lead really hams it up in the face acting department . Gruner looks like he is sleep walking . However Patrick Kilpatrick makes for a good villain. Fight choreography is for the most part quite flat. A couple of OK if generic plot ideas and Kilpatrick's villain can't save it.

For some reason it has a few seconds of pointless cameos in it for a seemingly unrelated scene. Overall it does have some so bad it's funny moments, but is completely forgettable 3/10
