    Not bad, but hack writer's plot twists that destroy the movie

    It wasn't your run of the mill action movie, well worth it. It did have some twists and turns that had you guessing. I'm not giving anything away. I enjoyed it.

    Maggie O and Michael Keaton both do great acting and help along suspense. The movie is better than recent James Bond movies and deserves more attention.

    I see 3 to 4 movies a month, everything from walt disney movies that are family friendly to John Wick style movies. For me, this so far is the best movie released since the theaters reopened. Good action movie, and it doesn't drag at all, the 2 hours just fly by and your attention is pinned to the screen. I really don't think at least half the movies released these days are worth the price of admission/concession, but this one is worth a watch on the big screen.

    To begin with, this movie should be seen from beginning to end; as it has a rather complex screenplay that puts the viewer in the brutal action right away: then we are plunged into a traditional, classic woman assassin movie with wildly entertaining action scenes and plot twists. The movie works on many levels; it is fun to watch; it is brutal and bloody: so that its appeal is limited to the heavy duty action fans; having said that, Maggie Q., Michael Keaton, and Samuel L. Jackson are professional and up to the challenge of deadly combat; plus, the entire production is high end and exciting. Aside: I felt placing the 2nd half of the Prologue at the end - threw off the petal to the metal starting point of this high voltage action movie. Finish the Prologue: get the story going; let it rip - that sort of classical 'real time' screenwriting.

    I loved everything about the movie, great movie. I’m still confused about the end when they both fired at each other. Does this mean a sequel is in the mix? Flash, I’m going to see it again. Loved It.

    The movie is entertaining lots of shootings special effects...the one draw back that I found it a bit confusing is the ending. I think the ending could have been done better than what happened.
