Being the online notebook of that @sizemore guy
"The thing is: This isn’t the kind of movie where explaining it conveys any of what it is to watch it. What makes this movie special is that Gareth Evans has uncovered the way great action films approach character and story, and has found a way to update it to serve a new, relentless model for the genre. This is where the action movie can go in the 21st century, which is someplace new, not just visually or narratively, but in human ability. The people who made it are the real new leveling-up."
