Unbelievable pace - very enjoyable for an action movie
I was captivated by this movie from the first scene to the last. The pace was so fast that I did not dare look away from the screen in case I miss the next turn of events. I also liked the storyline: a nice, harmless young man suddenly finds himself in the middle of a full scale war between a professional killer, who is a very clever, ruthless and beautiful lady, and the police. Of course the plot is not very realistic, which action movie is? Everything is exaggerated to make it more exciting. But compared to many other action movies, the plot is cleverly constructed and makes sense. There are even some humorous elements - like the way this young man tries to hold on to good manners in the midst of chaos, or the scene where a police commando storms the workshop of the young man's uncle who thinks this is about unpaid parking tickets. I have no explanation for the sharply negative comments on this page. It could be that the English version, which I have not seen yet, is much worse than the German version, but I doubt it. I also don't understand the complaint about German police not speaking in their native language. But this may be due to the fact that in Germany all foreign movies are dubbed and therefore I am used to it.
