Oh what in the fuck?! Peter Berg needs to quit snorting crystal meth before hitting the editing bay. Schizophrenic editing combined with allowing Mark Wahlberg to talk a mile a minute throughout most of the movie makes it nearly unwatchable. Seriously, the urge to turn this off about 20 minutes into it was almost overwhelming.
And what a criminal waste of Iko Uwais. The less editing you do during his fight scenes the better, but no, instead we get a Bergian shit show.
On the other hand, Lauren Cohan was great! I REALLY want to see her in more badass action roles. The apartment complex assault was the highlight of the movie because of her.
I will allow that this was 100% the wrong movie to put on after having watched four silent era films from 1915 earlier in the day.
