The Good, the Bad and the Senseless Action:

• The film flows in a fast pace but instead of it being in an exciting manner; it feels exhausting to follow.

• It's difficult to build a relationship between the audience and the character, specifically David Oyelowo's Harold, with a character that's written fairly thinly.

• The entire story just feels like an action-packed roller coaster ride with no real meaning or message to it. The fight scenes were acceptably entertaining with decent choreography delivered between the cast.

• There are some clever moments from the narrative when building into the conclusion, which turns out to be something entertaining to look forward to, but the resolution is a very lacklustre and generic ending.
