Fun Film
31 January 2021 | by dpsmith-61153See all my reviews

A really enjoyable watch - both Mikkelsen and Hudgens were great in their roles. I also really enjoyed Matt Lucas's performance. Wonderfully shot and a lot of exciting action. Felt it could've developed the assassin organisation a little more though for the sake of the story. But the story is well written nonetheless. Some good back story developments. The twist isn't as predictable as some other films. It's a lot of fun, really well paced also.
