That is one extremely boring movie. Loaded with
For the first hour it's not going anywhere. Also, it's
full of logical errors and plot holes.
Some eruptions of gore violence doesn't save it. A head of a guy is splashed off by a gun bullet, as if it was a grenade - funny, but for what?
Useless torture scenes. A hot sexy russian (!) sniper girl kills all her contractees, and a room full of soldiers, why? out of bad mood?
Not worth your life time.
