Honestly it wasn’t that bad and it had some great action scenes…
Ok. The middle part of this movie was terrible. I even considered turning the movie off. But aside from all of that, the beginning and the end (the first 25 minutes and the last 30 minutes) were pretty good. Those scenes were not too boring, included lots of action, and the acting wasn’t that bad. A lot of the time. Keep in mind that I said a lot of the time. Because there was one actor (the main actor in the movie, Alexander Nevsky) who was absolutely horrible. He has only been in a few films ever, does not even speak good English (he has a Russian accent so it is occasionally difficult to understand what he is saying), and simply looks bored when killing the bad guys. On the plus side, he is not seen much in the action scenes, only moreso in the middle of the movie. To conclude, I think this film should be watched at least once, as some parts of it were very enjoyable, and at the end, the fifteen minute long fight scene with guns and explosions is one that I just can’t stop watching.
Not as bad as expected
In my daily work I stumble upon many awful action films and I’ve seen them far worse than this, even with a way fatter budget. This one is a correct homage to 80’s martial arts and action flicks and its quality is honestly in line with those one, not being a good or great movie by any means, but at least entertaining and fun.
