If you liked John Wick...
9 May 2018 | by karlox_sSee all my reviews

...then I'd recommend you to watch this one, too. It's like John Wick on a budget, but not a really tight one, just on a budget. The lead actor will surprise you, I never saw him perform before and was expecting a cardboard cutout, Disney attraction animatronic quality perfomance, but ended up nailing everything perfectly. Famous actor Armand Assante also pulls a great performance despite the fact that he doesn't have a lot of screen time. The rest of the cast seem to have done what they were requested just as well, too.

Down-to-earth action sequences without ballet-alike martial art choreographies or 10-minute long duels, isn't shy with blood & gore whenever they should be there, gritty script-called events, and barely no time, if any at all, wasted on useless, boring, car chases.

Simple plot, but well carried. Pacing is good.

Bottom line, this movie aims to entertain and hits the bullseye. If you're into action movies, this one's for you hands down.
