    I feel like he just accepted he was a clone quite easily? Like he wasn't freaking out, it was just "oh yeah there's another me, pretty cool"

    A tongue-in-cheek shoot-em-up, it doesn't expect you to take it seriously so it doesn't either. Complete with unnecessarily gory violence, random nude women, and Danny Trejo having every woman at his feet, it's funny and an enjoyable watch. The classic tropes are all there which is lots of fun, such as the vague political element, the rich druglord, political drama, the priest, 16 barrelled shotgun, and a whole lotta revenge.
