    I hated it. Like, everything was so unbelievable. I wont go into detail, because there were lots of things that were unrealistic and annoying, but I'll just give one. Why does that bullet say goodbye? Hmm? Do all her bullets say that? Wouldn't they be super traceable?

    Why would you go in and watch it expecting it to be realistic? Just by watching the previews you can tell that it wasn't going to be.

    I didn't know I was going to see it, my friend picked me up and took me to it.

    Don't get me wrong, it had amazing action, and the effects were pulled off nicely, but I couldn't enjoy it because the plot was dumb. I wanted a better explanation than 'you were born to be an amazing assassin' as to why all this stuff could happen

    I can easily overlooked the superpowers (let's be honest, those are basically hereditary superpowers), because they make for great action scenes (deflecting a bullet... by shooting it with another bullet! [​IMG]), but the magical sewing machine was too much. They really should have devised some other, any other way for the Fraternity to determine their targets, anything but the Magical Loom of Doom.

    (Imagine what happened when they tried to replace wool with synthetic fibres, back in the sixties... [​IMG] )

    I could complain about how it took some liberties from the comic but if forget about them I get a film that is awesome, so good I could stand Angelina Jolie in it.

    I must be the only guy who isn't into her.

    I facepalmed when Morgan Freeman tells everyone that they were told to die. 'Your name came up. And so did yours. And yours did too. And hey, guess what? So did yours!'
