A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.
The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black, determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
With his reputation in tatters after a painfully unsuccessful delivery of a distinguished Japanese client, former triple-A executive protection agent, Michael Bryce, two long years after the disgraceful incident, is now reduced to a mere second-class bodyguard for hire. Under those circumstances, Bryce would do anything to prove his worth once again, and as a result, it won't be long before he accepts an offer from Interpol to escort the renowned international assassin Darius Kincaid from Manchester to the Hague. The task seems simple: Bryce only needs to transport the contract killer from point A to point B, nevertheless, Kincaid, as the only one with the guts and enough hard evidence to testify against a tyrannical Belarusian dictator, is an obvious target, while the trip to the Netherlands is long and hazardous. Without a doubt, this is a race against the clock as the mismatched duo will have to put aside their grudges, in a non-stop concerto for bullets. Written by
I was really looking forward to seeing this film - it has an interesting premise and two great actors who I really like. Unfortunately the experience was pretty disappointing. Its like the studio just put together a bunch of action movie clichés and just pumped out another one using the same old tired stereotypes. Even the car chases and fight scenes were the same thing we have seen hundreds of times before. I really was thinking of switching this off for most of the film - it was that bad. I can say, things improved slightly at the end - and patient viewers will be rewarded with a reasonable climax. The lead-up to it though, was just not interesting. Even the two very talented stars couldn't make it work, and thats saying something.
