Batman meets Bourne Identity
on March 10, 2018
This movie starts out like a dark super-hero origins movie. Think Batman if he was a child and had even less issue with killing people whom he thought were threats - and sprinkle in a bit of the Borne Identity.
This was the movie that introduced me to Saoirse Ronan; she turns in a fantastic performance in this role - and unlike many movies I found myself rooting for her success throughout. The director takes some artistic license as the movie goes on in the name of 'art' with some unusual camera angles, music and cinematography, but it was just unusual enough for me to think it wonderfully original and a departure from the cookie-cutter hero/heroine movies we've been bombarded with as of late.
The ending is a bit unusual, and I'm not sure I agree where they went with it or how abruptly it ended, but the journey is well worth it; if for nothing else than to see a fantastic young actress make her first leap towards what I've no doubt will be a long and fruitful career.
