Quirky / Assassin Film
26 January 2019 | by markottoh-98639See all my reviews

I really didn't expect to like this with a 6.5 critic rating.

However, within a few minutes of watching, I found myself chuckling at the odd and playful style they took with the film, somewhat reminding me of a videogame.

It's enjoyable and I think worth a watch and a decent action film.
