Great action, and that's all it needs to be.
13 July 2018 | by See all my reviews

Overall, I expected to see a lot of action. This, after all is an action movie, entirely revolving around its visuals and stunts, rather than acting. What did the movie deliver? Action. And, if I may say, some quite thrilling scenes that kept me on the edge of my seat to see what happened next, and the audience behind me certainly gave some gasps at some points during the film, as there are many scenes in which he is suspended hundreds of feet over the massive city of Hong Kong.

The movie delivers for what it is.
