The worst film ever made in history! Whoever likes this movie should undergo brain surgery. Horrible acting, plot, script, effects and even action! If you could go below 0, I would give it a negative 1000! This movie is that bad! Lucy Liu and Antonio Banderas together in one film? How is that going to work? Antonio and Liu are both horrible actors, and can't act to save their lives! It's just instantly forgettable, and I guarantee you that you'll fall asleep in the opening minutes. Just bad.
The principle problem is that the film is not Ecks Vs Sever. It's Ecks and Sever work together to achieve a mutually beneficial goal - the death of someone else, who we're never really clear on why he's a bad guy or what he wants. There's something about genetics which was apparently important in the last 45 seconds of the film. The fight scenes were like test footage of the Matrix without any of the CGI or quick editing done yet. And most damning of all - somehow they made explosions boring.
Ridiculous and insulting film. It tries on literally no level and insults the intelligence of every person who sees it. 7 points to the pyrotechnics team that had to probably put a lot of time info blowing a lot of things up.
For a director who abbreviates his name to 'Kaos', he makes a pretty mediocre and poorly choreographed action film. It's pretty minor and forgettable, how not to make an action movie or even to create individual action sequences. Only Antonio Banderas seems to have some prescience in this; he looks like he wandered onto the set with a hangover, but his charisma makes it work for the paper-thin character. Aside from that, there are far better films to dig up in this genre.
My god... I mean, low expectations be damned, this movie blew me away with its unapologetic shittyness... Shot in Vancouver, SET in Vancouver (thanks, KAOS) and is really just poorly-planned action scenes strung together with plot that I assume originated from monkey butts. When I tried to figure out what was going on in the movie, my brain farted.
Apart from one scene, which I call "Lucy Liu vs the Swat team," this movie is horrendous. That scene however is awesome, and if you like martial arts movies should rent it just for that. Fast forward to the fight scene though, the rest of it is simply dreadful.
It's amazing that a film with this many explosions is this boring. Possibly because they used more slo mo than all the Matrix movies and the 300 combined. Looks like everyone was in it for the paycheck too as there's no great performances, and the music is kinda crap.
