Half decent action-thriller though the dialogue was poor and the performance by the lead henchman (played by William Moseley), a proxy antagonist with Gary Oldman's character under "house arrest", was awful and came across as a whiny bitch than anything intimidating. On the plus side, I did like both Olga Kurylenko and Amit Shah, and Oldman for his part, which he likely filmed all of his scenes in one day, had his moments, at least. The fight choreography wasn't bad and did like they avoided using CGI blood splatter too much and used actual squids instead. All in all, it wasn't terrible and served as a passable action-thriller. **3.0/5**
