Just saw it. It's a really good action flick. It's well directed, the storytelling is good, and everybody seemed believable. The plot is a tad simple, the action choreography is really good, just not john wick good

I caught it on Saturday and although it was good, it wasn't as good as the book (but rarely is a movie ever as good as the book). The action was good but thought the story could have been better. The whole story about Stan Hurley, Mitch, and Victor was a lot better in the book but I understand that certain things have be cut in order to move the story along on film.

This x 1 billion. The books are great and have tons of detail. They condensed a ton to fit the timeline. I would have been just fine had the movie been another 30-45 minutes. It was still a good watch though, and I hope there will be sequels.

Great flick. My copy though didn't have good subtitles. So I couldn't get the full experience.

Never heard of the book. Ordered it on Amazon today.

Be sure to read them in chronological order to fully appreciate them. Let me know what you think after reading the first book. Wish the movie had been as good.
