A 16-year-old who was raised by her father to be the perfect assassin is dispatched on a mission across Europe, tracked by a ruthless inteligence agent and her operatives.
The reason I watched this movie was because I found the trailer interesting. I mean, a teen kicking asses is definitely my kind. Kicking asses, in general, is definetely my kind.
From the trailer you don't get to know lots of things about the characters. The only thing you know is that both father and daughter are hunted by CIA. You guess different things about the choice of the father to raise his child into the wild, but you don't expect the real reason and the real story.
Firstly, we have the characters.The daughter was playing really cold, which I think was the purpose of it, since she was raised to be a heartless killer. I felt that by the way she was raised she had missed her childhood and her normal teenage years and you could see that. The father was ok, for a former agent, but he had this distance from his daughter, like he never really shown his affection for her. As for the CIA agent who hunts them down, she's proffesional and a killer and she doesn't really show any kind of feeling or the reason why she hunts them down.
Secondly, you hear this weird accent that you can't define where it comes from.
And lastly, when I saw the trailer, I thought that the movie would take place into USA, maybe Canada and Alaska, but no. It had to be placed to a numerous of different countries and cities that you do not take a good look at.
The ends surprises. I wasn't expecting it at all. You only learn everything at the end and you are clueless during the movie which is a positive thing. The acting surprises too. As I mentioned above, the characters were kind of cold and motionless, but I don't think this was a bad acting. On the contrary, it must have been really hard for the actors to play cool with all this chaos around.
Bottom line, even though it was slightly weird and different, I found it interesting and I recommend it to you only if you would like to try another type of action movie than those you've seen in the past.
