    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.

          I only know 2 people who have seen it: both told me not to bother.

          But, the ridiculously gorgeous Charlize Theron as an action star?
          She's certainly selecting her roles with intent! So I may check it out at some point.
