Great to see an original movie once in a while.
Advice to those who haven't seen it:
1. watch it with subtitles
This is an original movie and I'm really happy to have seen it. Wouldn't take anything away nor would I add anything. JGL is amazing and a fantastic choice for Brendan. It's him where the "noirness" comes through: ballsy, intelligent, not afraid to tackle a stronger opponent... Loved how he wore the same clothes over and over again. Really great character.
I feel relief after reading other comments complaining about the abuse of slang in the dialogues; i had some problems following to what was happening because the slang and the fact that i'm not a native english speaker, but now i see it was a common problem.
