  • the story can't sustain the bloated running time and the ongoing, gratuitous violence. It's not the best showcase for Uwais' skills when he's bringing his fists to a gunfight.

  • The film swiftly settles into tedious mano-y-mano match-ups where the same special moves are executed ad infinitum and to seemingly diminishing and anonymous effect.
