I didn’t have the highest expectations when I first saw this film, and I was blown away by the experience. This was a fantastically entertaining action film, that showcases one of Keanu Reeve’s best performances in years, managing to sell both the genuine pathos of the film, as well as an effortless badass aura. One of the things I really liked about this film was how it illustrates how this film’s criminal underworld operates. I love the idea of a hotel for assassins with a strict no-kill policy, and I loved the sense of honor and moral codes amongst them. Stylized, moving, and genuinely thrilling, this was a great action film that served as an excellent springboard for the awesomeness that was to follow.
