Nothing exceptional
1 February 2020 | by drjgardnerSee all my reviews

There isn't anything special about the film. The acting is borderline OK and the photography is good. The direction is a little slow and there really are few tense scenes, when they should have been. The story itself is probably more realistic as the newly trained assassin does a poor job in everything she attempts. I thought there was way too much time at the beginning of the film and not enough action (tension) during the action scenes.
