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.
Great to see an original movie once in a while.
I knew nothing about the film when I first watched it, and I liked it a lot, especially for the originality and seamlessness of the plot. It is probably best known for the film noir style it embraces. It may come off as hard to follow or empty to those not used to the genre.
