- Realistic action scenes
- Nicely presented
- Nice BGM
- Simple story line
- There’s nothing much in the movie (Is it just me?)
I was very excited about this movie, cause it received a 100% fresh rating in rottentomatoes.com from the critics and I really like Keanu Reeves (even though he holds a blank expression through out the movie). I thought it would be a different kind of action movie (like The Matrix except for the story ofcourse). But in the end it is just an ordinary action movie. But having said that I would like to see a prequel to this movie (There are hints of a prequel story). Watch it for the realistic action scenes.
