Nothing outstanding here...
10 June 2018 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Needless to say that I sat down to watch this movie because of my admiration and love for the Asian cinema. And with this obviously being an action movie, then what is there not to like?

The storyline in "Extraordinary Mission" (aka "Fei fan ren wu") was a really messy and fuddled one. It was a storyline that made very little sense in most aspects.

And it didn't help that the characters were equally confusing, and not really having any distinctive personalities. This mundane character gallery was definitely weighing down the movie in overall.

The movie was sort of sluggish throughout two-thirds of the movie, right up until the location changed to Thailand. Then the movie amped up its action sequences tremendously.

And while we are on the topic of the action sequences in the movie, then I must admit that they were quite good, and it ultimately was those that held the movie afloat.

"Extraordinary Mission" might have an impressive title, but the movie itself was actually only mediocre.
