Intensity that leads to no where

Sadly, there was much to lead to. The “bad guys” are never really working for anyone with a face, what they are after are never mentioned either. In the end, it’s a chase movie with no reason behind it. The acting was good and so were the action scenes, but I’m not a huge fan of movies that use the f- word 3x per sentence: a bit overkill. (Also, beware it’s a bit graphic).

Too much swearing
