Pretty blatant John Wick ripoff (though I guess it is based on a graphic novel). I like Mads, though.

Yea, at first glance the setting/theme seem generic, but it could turn out to be interesting... plus Mads.

this is a netflix movie btw i don't think it'll be in theaters

i liked that one movie with Idris Elba and african kid soldiers but there really haven't been many "great" netflix movies. Bird Box sucked

netflix movies are an odd duck. a few of them COULD have been great if a few things were just ironed out. but then there's a whole slew of them that are violently unwatchable.

and yet, they keep getting all these great actors and actresses for them. it's like no one's figured out they are just scyfy 2.0

Snagged this and korsub aquaman, I played this first then aquadude expecting this to be trash, but we ended up snoozing through aquadude and preferring polar by far.

5/10. Mads and the action sequences were good. The ethnic breakfast club and gay baby Huey were atrocious though.

I found it to be incredibly disjointed and fairly schizophrenic. Mads Mikkelsen was OK, every other performance was either over the top flamboyant or completely wooden.

Yeah it had budget but seemed either poorly written or most likely poorly put together.

So typical Netflix original quality as of late? I suppose that's what happens when you just start throwing money all over the place while focusing on quantity to fill your catalog.
