Definitely the movie to watch if you can stand gory stuffs, and Rain is not bad to look at either. Haha~ Rain was the main reason that I took into account to even watch the movie, if not, don’t even think about it.
Rain acts as a ninja assassin who has been trained as a killing machine since young in a secluded ninja school nestled high up in the snowy mountains.
The movie summary, at Wikipedia and at IMDb.
For me, the story line was quite good as it was really expected. Although the blood splattered throughout the movie was really fake, it did give it a sense of ‘realness’… I don’t know… Haha~
The gory parts of the movie was that there were excessive amount of blood and whenever the ninjas were fighting, there will be bound to be body parts flying around. But, thank goodness that most of the fighting scenes happened at night and so the bloody parts were not as obvious as it would be if it were to happen in the daytime.
The action scenes of the movie was totally good and it wasn’t at the point where people will start to think that it will be highly impossible to achieve.
But there was a really cute and hilarious part during the movie. It was when Raizo (Rain) got caught by the Europol (European version of Interpol, I think, but definitely the police or something) and they said that he did not look like an assassin but more like he belonged in a boy band. It was so damn funny. Haha~
Rain, hmm~ lets just say that I love him even more. Haha~ He looks totally awesome and hot in the movie. And my sister was saying that ‘His six packs looks even hotter than Taylor Lautner’s’ and I went ‘DUH!!! Rain is older and obviously his body would be more developed than a kid’s lah’. Don’t get offended, Lautner’s fans, but technically he is still a kid, definitely not an adult yet.
Anyways, I just love Rain, can’t say much about his acting because I’m not a judge of that. I usually just watch any movies which I have an interest in, no matter is the actor, actress, the storyline, the trailer, and whatever that attracts me to it. I sometimes love movies which other people may hate. But, ya~ thats me. So, generally I don’t really bother about the acting as long as it is not bad, and that it is not painfully obvious that the actor or actress just can’t act at all.
Or maybe I’m just bias. Hehe~
Ok. Trailer time.
If you have not watched it, it is definitely worth it. But bear in mind that it is so not for the faint hearted. Even I had to cover my eyes in certain scenes.
I have included an interview, but I have not watched it so I’m not sure what it contains. If it contains anything explicit do tell me and I’ll remove it, or until I have seen it.
There is also the official interview with both Rain and Naomi Harris, but I can’t embed the videos, so the links, for Rain’s and Noami Harris’.
