This was a pretty good futuristic, super being against super being, movie. It was very Bond and Bourne-ish and yet unique in its own ways. Not quite refreshing enough for five stars, I’ll give it props for getting me excited about going to see a movie, and having a plot that didn’t come off as fake or silly. All in all it was a pretty cool Bourne, Bond, type of flick. 4 Stars. – MR
