As a work of art, it fails miserably. It didn't leave me asking any questions, nor did it leave me wanting to watch it again. However, it did entertain me, and sometimes that's all your after. While half of the entertainment may have come from Chris Evans' character, and the other half from reasonably tense action sequences, it entertained me none-the-less. This film tries to look like a comic book, lots of close ups, character view, and freezing shots. While in the first five minutes, which are great by the way, it seems more like a gimmick, as the film goes on, it gets more and more subtle. As for the story, it's very by the numbers, with a very unthreatening villain, and an obvious twist. The characters aside from Chris Evans are quite forgettable, more just tools to be used for action. If you're in the mood for cinematic junk food, you might enjoy it.
