Storyline

They're strangers. Adrien, a former high-flying bank robber, recently released from prison and suffering from an incurable form of cancer... Werner, a sniper and ex-legionnaire, presently a mercenary, who has seen it all, from Angola to Sarajevo. He is driven by suicidal madness... ~A contract brings them together in Bucharest: a rigged attack on a Romanian general standing for election, an attack during which they will let themselves be killed. In return, a million dollars in cash each. Enough to ensure Adrien's family's future and to give Werner one last opportunity to face death head on... The journey begins tensely. Everything sets them apart, with only their imminent death in common. Yet, the ice slowly breaks. A friendship without a future is the only friendship possible for these two men. After their past experiences, they know they're condemned but they never once imagined what awaits them... No one could have... The fake "attack" turns into a bloodbath. Adrien and Werner are ...

Hard to follow and no real payoff for the effort
4 February 2019 | by freydis-eSee all my reviews

There are only two reviews, so I'll add another. I did try at first to stay with this, but the plot and character motivations were always a mystery. Things seemed to happen for no reason and because I never cared about either of the main characters, my attention soon started to wander.

There's nothing unusual or interesting here, a sequence of stock action situations, reasonably staged in themselves. I'm not a fan of action for action's sake, and those who are will doubtless enjoy this more than I did. I can't praise the acting because they were unable to engage me. I watched for about an hour then gave up, so I can't comment on the ending.
