    An incredible movie in nearly all accepts. A stellar soundtrack combine with a film noir style to create a perfectly realized dark world. An interesting plot with a hint of morality, make the film more than a big brash action movie. Harrison Ford gives a layered performance to bring a likeable but rough character to the screen. Action that is fast and enjoyable but with a brutal edge inline with the films dark world. Maybe it's only flaw is the…
