So here's the really honest review you want to read. It's short. This movie is pretty great for the genre. The plot gets more and more implausible, and it's kind of nose holding "suspend your disbelief." As far as a good action movie with a cute premise, this is spot on. A "one time must see," but not likely something you'll wear out.
This was fantastic! From the first scene to the last I was in astonishment at the hyper-realistic plot, the deep characters who really developed, the amazing physics at work! One of the defining films of my generation. Usually I'm disgusted at how Hollywood makes everything so over the top, cheesy, and unrealistic, but this is a masterpiece. Such an original idea too, with such artistic and moving direction, I cannot recommend this enough. My only complaint is it felt a tad short at just shy of two hours.

The film keeps semi-close to the graphic novel which is fantastic by the way. But the film takes out all of the mutant superhero aspects that were in the graphic novel. Which before I saw the film thought would jinx it but it did not. This is one of the best action films in recent memory. And Angelina Jolie with her lips as an assassin you gotta love it.
