Review

This film is what one would call “kick ass” with lots of “edge of your seat” action. If action movies are your thing than this film is for you.

The story is not complex; good guy vs bad guy tries to get another bad guy. There are a couple of twists, which were good, but generally the story was simple. This is no romance really.

Both of the main actors did a brilliant job, they were both suitable to the roll.

The special effects and execution of the action were done really well. There were some CGI slip ups here and there that could have been fixed fairly easily.

It looks as though this was either filmed in The Philippines, Manila to be specific, or in Thailand; not really sure which. The police cars suggested it was in Manila. I can’t find any specific information on where exactly.

Summary

I really enjoyed it, didn’t have to use to many brain cells yet it was perfect action entertainment. I will give it 4.5/5, marked down for some minor errors.
