I really wanted to like this movie but it was too slow for me. Kinda dull to be honest.

It's a movie that never loses sight of what it originally intends, nor does it pander to taste or pretend to be better than it is. The script is solid and seamless. There are some shortcomings as to continuity and perspective of a linear timeline, but there is SO much emotion in even the smallest scenes as to make this almost trivial. I believe this is a masterpiece of directing overall that goes far beyond the mediocre nature of even the best of Hollywood's action films. It has a passionate heart with a brutal honesty that involves vulnerability conflicting with its own desire for the desolation of complete resolve regardless of circumstance.

I watched this drama, action, thriller, suspense, and romantic movie on Netflix. Colin Farrell loses his wife and his daughter and comes after who now is his boss, a few years later. His female neighbor blackmails him to do a hit on a drunken driver who ruined her life. They fall for each other. Great plot, twist at the end, and excellent movie! 5 stars.
