PopBucket writes: For such a low budget ($1,100,000) Gareth Evans demonstrates his ability to create an action-packed film to rival any other high octane feat out there. Be warned this is an unapologetically violent film and the persistent violence can become monotonous at points. However the stunts are inventive, the fight sequences are very convincing and the actors superbly showcase all of this with creative athleticism. That’s the integral backbone to the brilliance of this film. It's what makes it so fun to watch.
