Supersolid old-school crime thriller, ticking off all the checkboxes of the genre and adding a few new tricks. Brutal and stylish action, great acting, interesting characters, snappy dialogues, solid cinematography, terrific music and sound design.
The script certainly doesn’t invent the wheel and is a bit over the top at times, but it’s a thrilling ride from start to finish and an intense experience.
If you have something valuable to add or some interesting point to discuss, I’ll be looking forward to meeting you on Mastodon!
