Keanu has found another movie he’s good for. There is a very abrupt style of fighting and this could be taken as a big promotion for guns so not one for kids below a certain age.
Yes, it’s OTT, a bit silly and very much a dramatic, maybe even ‘artistic’ interpretation of a comic-book style and there’s not much room for anything except the violence. Claudia presents a little interlude of drama and decadence with a hint of the old Roman Imperialism before we run in to the thick of the action.
Seems to be a more realistic style of gun fighting with people being shot directly and deliberately by a very skilled assassin. Choreography is amazing when you break down the continuous shots (no pun intended).
Obviously not much of a plot but still an interesting film with Ian and the hotel adding a much needed element of depth and respectability.
Maybe watch it twice. I hear there’s another coming out… bet I know what happens.
Watchability (once, twice, etc.)
Yes if in box set.
Watch if on TV?
Hug, Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Snog. In the Continental Hotel. When the dog is watching…. Too much detail?
