Bayisms start to finish with some of his most intense nervewracking editing and cinematography yet. Story and characterizations are just points on the graph of the action beat per minute.
The straight-forward quick characterization and intense camera work acting as a western extension of the tokusatsu legends who broke ground with simple impactful action narratives. The everyman's Michael Mann. An ode to the Michael Bay film by Michael Bay. One of the greatest circlejerks on film.
