What can be said about this movie...It is very well done. I was surprised how difficult some of the
scenes were to watch as I felt a great sadness in seeing what was done to end a ten year hunt. The movie is not an action packed movie like Act of Valor but rather an attempt to show Americans what happens in the world of intelligence and anti-terrorism. Like I said this movie will strike a nerve even if you are not naive to tactics of intelligence gathering but I felt that everything was portrayed in a way that could be understood.
Overall a good movie with outstanding actors that was visually striking.
Watching this movie brought me back to the '80s when I watched Kung Fu Theatre on USA. This movie
was no block buster but it was a retro homage to those movies that entertained so many. If you enjoy being entertained by classic martial arts films with all of the impossibilities and mysticism that the old world fighting styles bring than this is definitely the movie for you.
I could tell you all the same pros and cons of this movie that everyone else is saying but I will
spare you the repeated rhetoric. What I will tell you is that there is no point in spending the extra money to see it in 3D as there is not much there. I did find it an enjoyable movie that I would not turn off it it was on the SyFy channel. Like the Underworld franchise this gives you some hot girls with an excuse to be in sexy cosplay outfits, mindless killing, slow motion fight sequences, and a story line a five year old can understand. Is it a pinnacle movie that will leave you feeling like you are a better person or that you have learned valuable life lessons - No. But it will entertain you for an hour and ten minutes - I deducted some time because Alice's summary of all the other movies is unnecessary. I say you could wait to rent it but you will probably need to see it so what should be the last movie will make sense when it comes out next year.
