Based on the Man of Action/Image Comics original graphic novel created by Joe Casey and Chris Burnham, written by Joe Casey, about a police officer who can't be stopped by death so he returns to the streets time and time again to fight crime.Written by
Man of Action
Very weird, but it seemed all purposeful and coherent. Maybe except the way how the tension was handled: wasn't much different from most movies, but something felt off. Somewhat anticlimactic, despite many climaxes indeed. It's a very healthy mixture of cliché behavior leading to deconstructive results. I like when a movie can surprise me. This was disruptive of what other movies trained me to expect. It was stupid and gory, but not grim. One more surprise here, as recent productions just have to be dark and gritty. This is like Dredd (2012), except that it's not some of the characters being on drugs, it's the movie makers. Really reminds me of Planet Terror (2007).
