Viewing Notes

I dig this movie. The pieces don’t all fit together that well but the main story of this “accountant” is interesting and different than other assassin flicks. I like the rituals and processes he undergoes to cope and deal with his condition. That he’s a unconventional Robin Hood provides a warm side to his cold conditioning. The brother relationship is a bit obvious and on the nose for the story but I like how it wraps up for these characters. Good humor in this as well.
