Comment: I liked this movie because of the cinematography and the superb acting. There are tons of movies out there that are great but this movie breaks all barriers. The opening scene with Castor Troy arriving at the airport, is a scene which I have seen at least a billion times. The music that supports that scene is so lavishly put together that it is mind bending. John Powell is a music prodigy. John Woo is a legend, his views of making movies has changed Hollywood. The way he portrays each character is a marvel. Their emotions can be felt, and the way he shows their anger and rage leaves the viewers speechless. The cast is well put together and the music is extraordinary.
