Watched this yesterday. Definitely had a John Wick vibe but not as well done as John Wick. It was entertaining enough and the action scenes were pretty good. Moved a bit slow in between action scenes and the bad guys are super unlikable. I guess that's the point, but they're obnoxiously unlikable. Twist at the end was fun.

At the torture porn part so taking a break to look at my phone. The bad guy isn't even original, keeps just pinching and cutting.

This movie ranged from okay to great. Mads was the strongest part of this movie. The man is always entertaining to watch.

It is impossible not to compare this movie to John Wick. John Wick is superior in every way of course. This doesn't take itself too seriously, and that was fun at times, but like Wagner said, the villains didn't work at all for me. They bad guys were basically cartoon characters. I did like how they flat out ripped off the dog bit from John Wick, but Mads killed it accidentally.

Ending was a good twist. I was waiting for Vanessa Hudgens to be his daughter, since they were talking about next of kin throughout the movie. I thought she would be revealed to be his daughter and he would kill himself once the company knew she was the person to inherit the money. In hindsight the Vanessa stuff worked great. Mads wanted her to kill him and tried "training" her to do so.

Laser fingers are awesome.

LOVED the scene at the school. That was hilarious.

If 20 minutes of fluff was cut from this it would have gone a long way. 2 hours was just too long for this kind of b-movie. Does make me want to watch Shoot 'Em Up again
