Carl Hudson’s review published on Letterboxd :
I got tired of watching bad horror movies, so I skipped over to the mindless-action-genre a bit. What I got was a great homage to the Ninja movies of the 80's, filled with violence, blood and ninjas.
There was also a clichéd, but fun, conspiracy plot that I didn't pay much attention to, to be honest. I was too busy observing the beautiful and insane levels of blood and violence.
James McTeigue directs with a fantastic, anime-like visual flair. I think I really like him, actually, after this and V For Vendetta. I have still to see The Raven, which hopefully looks good, at least. I'm not expecting much else from it, to be honest.
