Average Movie - A look into how the movie is and what to expect
(This review doesn't summarize plot it is not what it is aimed at)
The movie doesn't feel like a 2014 movie but rather more of an early 2000's or late 90's.
The way the camera is used specially gives that feeling, the image just doesn't have that crisp quality and some shots are a bit pointless. The sound was bad at intervals, switching from scene to scene sometimes it was fine and sometimes it felt like it was recorded on a phone. Soundtrack further gives it that feeling out an old movie. Acting was average most times dialogue felt very stiff and with little to no presence this mainly applies to the side characters. Main characters were better acted specially "Gun Woman" she did a respectable job for the role.
As to the movie, its a bit all over the place its build up its going to be a little slow for some people, fight scenes are not 'that' great but perhaps take a more real approach that others movies exaggerate by adding over the top stunts and moves (so basically don't expect fight scenes like "The raid redemption" type). As to the goriness of the movie, yes there is a certain degree of it mixed in with a fair amount of nudity so if this is something which bothers you, maybe move onto another movie.
The movie gets more exiting after the first half but you will feel there is not enough character development for everyone except for 'Gun Woman' which we get told a little bit of her life but otherwise the detail provided feels minimal and you won't find yourself too attached to the characters.
Overall camera work is old fashioned, sound is average, characters are average, acting is on the low side on most characters and story itself is not bad just wished there was more depth to it.
So I think a 5/10 is a good score for this movie though i struggle at times to keep myself from watching something else i still found parts of it entertaining.
