If you love moderately paced realistic action, I mean not the kind of action where bullets fly of the main hero and all kinds of unbelievable nonsense is happening, but the kind of action, where you have the time to enjoy every scene and the plot is actually pretty believable - this is the one.

I enjoyed every bit of it: from the atmosphere that doesn't really rush you, but doesn't bore you either. Nothing is too slow, and what is much more important, nothing is too fast - which is so common in action scenes. My respect to the video editor - he's done a marvelous job. The composer is also brilliant - the music is so dark, atmospheric and beautiful.

And all the main characters in this play are lovable. I mean, the main studs are just so cool. They are like the definition of toughness. If you take guys like Rambo, Batman or Luke Skywalker - they are not even close to that definition cause of the unrealistic atmosphere. You know you're been tricked watching those too good to be true kind of guys. In this movie - it's pure joy to watch that manliness brought on screen.

So, go watch it. I first thought: too many good reviews, those people aren't real, but I'll give it a try anyway. Now I realize it's actually a great piece of dark cinema. And that's the kind of cinema I usually enjoy the most. So, my thumbs are pointing up. Loved it and will definitely watch the next part, when it's out.
