Well this really wasn’t what I was expecting. I don’t know why I thought this movie would be different but I did. I expected almost a more adult version of The Transporter so I was expecting more violence and less of a story driven suspense film. Now saying that this film is still very good. It’s a slower paced thriller/action/suspense film. Ryan Gosling along with the rest of the cast play their role perfectly. The action when there is some is done tastyfully for the feel of the movie while still remaining quite brutal. The thing that I feel most people like about the movie is with how it flows you always are being held by suspense and left wondering what will happen next. Also this movie has by far one of the greatest soundtracks I’ve heard in a long time. It really has that 80’s feel to it. Overall I feel this movie is worth the view and maybe with another vfiew I’ll enjoy it a bit more.
