It was good.

Saw it last night. Would make a great series. Kind of like Assassins meets 6 Underground without the big Michael Bay 25 minute car chase opening.

I actually read the comic book/graphic novel and met the artist at New York Comic Con 2019.

Too much plot not enough heart. It was just going through the motions (paint-by-numbers). The fight scenes had no emotional content. "We need emotional content"--Bruce Lee. The way it was shot, lenses etc., it felt small and insignificant. Would have tanked badly on the big screen.
