I think the most accurate description here would be "kick ass."

Really, really tremendous fight scenes and a whole lotta whup ass goin' on.

If you are squeamish, or cannot tolerate headshots and blood, it's a hard pass.

I'm not sure it's a great date movie, unless, of course, you're into this sorta thing.

It is wall-to-wall action, picking up in what amounts to Act II and rounding the corner quickly to the longest Act III I've seen in a very long while.

The plot is: punch, shoot, slice, pop a wheelie, break the man's neck, throw him over the staircase, take a 1-mile headshot from the rooftop, crash the car into the embassy barricade, jump through the window, zipline across the street, belly-crawl, throw glass in an assassin's eyes, kick-break his leg in half, then do it all over again about nine more times to 40 more bad dudes in black, menacing motorcycle jackets.

Then again for extra measure.

And one more time for good luck.

And hell, a third time just for the fun of it.

INSERT ENDCRAWL.

MUSIC.

FADE TO BLACK.

"FILMED IN BOGOTA, COLOMBIA AND GEORGIA, THANK YOU VERY MUCH."

NOW GET OUT OF HERE.
