The movie starts at a cafe. A young woman walks in. A while later a man arrives. He sits down at her table, you can see before he walks in she's not happy about it. They start talking. You start wondering what it's all about. Suddenly he throws a cup of hot coffee in her face and bashes her head into a solid object close to the camera. You can really see the impact. The fight continues and my first impression is: professional. If you liked the Bourne Identity series you'll love this. It has the same professional feel to it, but at the same time it's not as dark as Bourne Identity. It doesn't have the same pressure, but it certainly has a lot of suspense; a lot of good fight scenes.
All the while it manages to remain calm. You get involved in the action in a strange way, many things are filmed from such an angle that you feel present, but at the same time the atmosphere is distant. Everything is calm. It makes me wonder, was there a soundtrack? I don't remember one. Did the lack of a soundtrack make it seem all the more professional, does the silence invoke a sense of reality in the movie? I should mention btw (spoiler btw) that both of these two characters presented in the start of the movie are agents. In a way it feels like a mixture of Mission Impossible and Bourne Identity. At the same time it's fresh. It's a great movie. Highly recommended.
