Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: I see it has mixed reviews from the overseas press... I was new to the story and found it quite watchable. The action sequences are a bit fast, almost as if the director is fluffing them. There are some holes or troublesome issues in the plot, but no worse than any thing else coming out of Hollywood. Presumably they are handled better in the book. Guy Pearce does give a somewhat cliched villian performance, but it works okay. The story has been filmed many times, I guess the revenge emotion strikes a deep chord with cinemagoers.
