ACTION PACKED..WELL...ACTION FILM !! !! !! !! !!,
This review is from: Ballistic - Ecks Vs Sever [DVD] (DVD)
Ballistic:Ecks vs Sever, besides from its ratherstrange title, is one of the best action films of its year (in my opinion).
Lucy Lui and Antonio Banderas play great and very appropriate parts in this film. Along side the cool soundtrack and the intense action scenes this film is one of the best non stop action films there is.
The story for this film is nothig we havent seen before. An ex FBI agent with a presumed dead wife has been called from retirement to fight a super assassin type woman and a guy who plans to kill lots of people with a microscopic robot (that he plans to release upon the world). So this is obviously nothing spectacular in terms of a script or story line. And many scenes are over the top in terms of bullet dodging and exploding cars which seem to fly for no reason. And on the terms of explosions, this has lots, probably the most ive ever seen in a film.
And if you like this sort of thing, youll probably see this to be a film adaptation of a typical shooting game for a Playstation. As i wouldnt be surprised if thats where they got most of the ideas.
There are a couple of car/bike chases too, not brilliant but there is plently of shooting and of course explosions to acompany it.
If you buy this film then you must like action films and preferably be a gaming mad person under the age of 15, other wise rent it first and see what you think.
