User Review

Good, not the best

Rating: 8/10


After seeing the relatively low rating on this movie I decided to just
give it a go without expecting too much.

Boy was I wrong! One of the most compelling intros I've seen this year,
with humor, fast paced storytelling and very, very stylishly done,
what's not to like? Well: the story is fast but not so much original.
The action is good but didn't quite blow me off my chair. Woody
Harrelson is fun, but this role seems to be typecast for him, don't
expect too much out of the ordinary. Harnett pretty much copies the
role he had in Lucky number Slevin. Gackt makes his debut I think and
does so convincingly.

Should you see this movie? Yes! It's beautifully made, switches visual
styles, languages and mood a lot and does so convincingly. Just don't
expect to many surprises from the writing department. 8/10
