Disappointing
31 December 2014 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

Whenever I read the words "arthouse action", I immediately think of Drive, I can't help it. It's an instinct. So yeah, sort of expect that same sort of atmosphere, and while the mood and pacing here is like that in a way, it's just not all that interesting. Inherently it is, the cinematography is quite good, as is the editing. The lead actor seems a bit empty, and not in the way that it worked in Drive. There could've perhaps been more there, seeing as how that's the way I really saw it not working. Still, there were some moments of inspired brilliance, the film wasn't always uninteresting, and it was nicely composed. by the end of it, I actually kind of liked it for some reason, and it's why I'm giving it more positive than negative despite my review not sounding like that at all
