Asian action flick on par with Hollywood blockbusters
There's a lot of similarities that can be drawn with this movie and others. There is "Hardcore Henry" which was an experimental 1st Person action movie, and definitely "Le Femme Nikita". The version I saw had terrible amateur subtitles and seemed to run 5 min short of the official release running time. Still, the movie kept my attention through out, which is more than I can say for a lot of the movies I have seen lately. There is some excellent cinematography in regards to the action sequences and they come across fluid and realistic. There is a lot of fairly graphic violence to go along with it, which I kind of liked as anything with a budget from the USA these days seems to be tame on the gore front. Its a shame it seems to be getting such a limited release given the just over 500 + ratings its had on IMDb 3 full months on from its release. Hopefully this movie will find its audience in the future.
