We did not think it was a very good movie. However I can understand a younger generation might enjoy.

Some movies are just soooo stooopid they are beneath comment, as was Jolie's acting in this.

I really liked this movie.

Campy at times.

Stereotypical at times.

Often quite unrealistic.

Unusual plot.

However.....

Special effects quite good.

Plot closure quite good.

Overall just boiled down to being simply very entertaining.

And at times that's exactly what one is looking for (in fact, a lot of times).

Office Space meets The Matrix. Fun, silly movie.

Not much more than a fun action romp here. I don't have a lot to say as there is very little to this movie. Sometimes it feels far too ambitious, like it thinks it is a much deeper film than it is which is a quality I absolutely loath in all art. If you're really bored it's worth a watch but there are many, far better action movies in this world.

A frustrated office worker learns that he is the son of a professional assassin, and that he shares his father's superhuman killing abilities.

In this movie the main character goes from a ho hum life to one that is thrilling and full of danger.

Unrealistically he becomes someone his father was while he finds out just who he is.
Moving from an office worker to a natural born killer, James McAvoy is put through the paces that Anjelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman exact on him.

Excellent performances by all with special effects that are top rated.
A must see for the "Matrix" style FX alone.

17+ should be the age group due to graphic violence
