About the Movie

Taken from the streets as a child, Raizo (Rain) is transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society. But haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them...and vanishes. In Berlin, Europol agent Mika Coretti (Naomie Harris) has stumbled upon a money trail linking several political murders to an underground network of assassins from the Far East. Defying the orders of her superior, Ryan Maslow (Ben Miles), Mika digs into top secret agency files to learn the truth behind the murders. Her investigation makes her a target, and the Ozunu Clan sends a team of killers led by the lethal Takeshi (Rick Yune), to silence her forever. Raizo saves Mika from her attackers, but he knows that the Clan will not rest until they are both eliminated. Now, entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse through the streets of Berlin, Raizo and Mika must trust one another if they hope to survive...and finally bring down the elusive Ozunu Clan.

Rotten: This saga, set in Berlin, is more committed to its bloodletting than to any of its characters. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Shouldn't throwing stars be silent? If they're gonna sound like gunshots, why not just use guns? – Brian Miller, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's a gorefest, a borefest and a snorefest. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: A movie that provides plenty of jolts but precious little pleasure. – Dan Kois, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

fantastic movie

This film was one heck of a ride, it was action pack and because of the R rating it was even better with the blood and gore, it wasnt as good as the MATRIX (FIRST ONE) but still good. Its story line could of been better but what can you do right, its the best it could do and was entertaining, It had nice fight scenes and good angle views of the fights, would recommend it to anyone who likes blood and gore fighting movies


cool effin movie!

If anything else..... the Wachowski Brothers have not lost their touch!

First of all, for anybody interested in watching this movie after watching the trailers know this: the movie COMPLETELY promises the trailer's messages of cool, stylish, and (obviously enough) bloody action. Rain plays a dead-on ninja assassin and while the story may feel slightly familiar, it's the kind of familiar that you feel comfortable with, not the kind of familiar that gets you so frustrated over how cliche it already is! As mentioned before the Wachowski brothers have not lost their touch visual effect-wise though with all the effort you've seen them go through for this film it feels like a bummer for them not to might as well direct this themselves. So all-in-all this has all the makings of an action flick that true guys will look forward to actually BUYING these days.
