Storyline

Waking inside a laboratory on an airship, a man recalls bullies from his childhood. A scientist, Estelle, greets him and tells him his name is Henry, she is his wife, and that he has been revived from an accident that left him amnesiac and mute. After she replaces a missing arm and leg with cybernetic prostheses, mercenaries led by the psychokinetic Akan raid the ship, claiming all of Estelle's research is Akan's corporate property. He kills Estelle's scientists before attempting to murder Henry, but Henry and Estelle flee in an escape pod, landing in Moscow. Estelle is abducted by the mercenaries, who try to kill Henry..

Wild Ride of Gore and Humor
31 March 2016 | by marielemelleSee all my reviews

I must say "Look out Quentin Tarantino!" What a crazy ride! Director/Writer Ilya Naishuller is hardcore and takes shootouts to a different level.

I loved the camera movement but it does take some getting used to. Overall, it was entertaining in a gory way and the splattering of humor made the gore a little more tolerable.

One scene with the subtitles overlapping (not sure if on purpose) was interesting and funny because it was a 3-person conversation - whiny and catty - all talking at the same time.

If you like Jason Statham and Quentin Tarantino action and shock value, you will love it!
