    Not a good movie. I wish I could summarize my complete hatred toward this film within the confines of a paragraphs length, but alas, I am unable, and unwilling at that. Cliche characters, boring, unoriginal.

    Unlike most enforcers in the movies, Jacky isn't just a brainless slab of meat.

    Schoenaerts has the gift of being able to make inarticulateness expressive. Perhaps this is why, in moments, he seems to recall Brando and Dean.

    Schoenaerts is often affecting and just as often scarily intense. The film's intensity, by contrast, beams on and off.
