Review:

There is pretty much nothing in theaters right now that I want to pay the steep price of a ticket for. However I recently found myself with a babysitter and had to find something. Luckily a theater in my area had this playing.

***Spoilers***

I’m going to be blunt and start off with I didn’t like the ending. It reminded me of The Matrix Revolutions in that everyone I cared about died. I thought a couple scenes dragged a little, and by a little I mean a minute max. The first action scene had an overabundance of shaky cam and the coolest good guy went out like a bitch.

That being said, the movie was incredibly creative and kept me on my toes. Just when I thought it was safe to head to the bathroom a pregnant school teacher pulls out a machine gun and starts firing at people.

I’d love to see more from this world. If it was a book I would be demanding a sequel. Since it’s a movie I’m not sure.

3/5
