I don't have much to say on this one. It's cool, stylish, and pretty entertaining, but, for me, it's also a bit underwhelming. What it does well, it really does well. It creates a hyper-stylized cityscape saturated in darkness and filled with violence, putting a violent hero in the center of it. A lot of the sequences are really powerful because of the film's stylistic flourishes (the use of violence, slow motion, color, etc.), but ultimately, the film as a whole felt a little bit lacking, especially in the character and writing department. It's one of the best movies of recent years when it comes to style, but some substance was unfortunately lacking for me. All that being said, I still loved it, just not as much as I hoped I would.
