saw again after feeding on source material of the graphic novel/comic , after which it made more sense - it felt more of a genuine screen conversion from the graphic novel, albeit a colour version of it.

4 stars.

Watched it few days ago... the only thing I like was Charlize...The film itself lacks some taste, I don't know... I had a feeling that I saw it already...nothing new, OK for 1 time.

saw this last night, it looked really sharp, the 4k helped for sure!

the sound mix was very bass heavy, but whenever there was music playing the bass was lacking...

john wick with spy bits, its a shame its flopped tho as would love to see a squeal/prequel

8/10

A multi-layered flashback to the 80s - not just in the setting and the (great) music, but also in the style of the film itself.

All flash and no substance, just like all those 80s movies & music videos.

Makes a lot more sense when you realise it's based on a comic/graphic novel.

Great fun, but not for the sqeamish - it is pretty violent.
