    Care to expound? I was thinking about checking this one out... trailer seemed pretty good.

      The movie makes no sense at all, its all a European movie,, The soundtrack is so loud in many scenes... The girl is a test tube baby trained to be a assassin by her father.. The movie jumps around so much its impossible to figure out whats
      going on or what the plot is...Listening to many others, they said it was a waste of money....

        I liked it a lot.

        Replace Jason Borne with a 16 year old girl.

        She’s the product of a terminated experiment (when she was 2) to enhance DNA to add strength, agility and remove empathy and fear.

        It’s as believable as any plot out there.

        She’s not hot, and she’s not macho, and most might not catch the Grimm undertones (while not entirely clever might be missed entirely if one isn’t familiar).

        I liked how her strength and skilled was immediately conveyed by her bringing down a caribou with a bow, and dragging it back to the cabin herself in the snow. Most America movies would have that strength being conveyed by her defending herself from gang bangers trying to rape her.

        But I’m reading as here, and other reviews most don’t like it.

        I’m the odd man out.

          Sounds like I'd like it, then. When the masses don't, I often do.

          Matinee or full-price worthy?

            Most of the reviews I've read touch on the Grimm influences, and were all positive.

              No at all. While it is a European movie, my wife and I both liked it. I won't give away any spoilers but I liked how the movie was put together, especially the first half of it. I also can't recall a movie with Eric Banna in it that I didn't like, but then again I've avoided the rom-coms he's done.

                that's encouraging. i'm become disenchanted with Hollywood fare these past several years. very little is innovative or creative. Avatar was just special effects wrapped around Pocahontas. i'm finding european and asian story development more challenging and engaging.

                  My wife and I went and saw it last night, and we both enjoyed it.

                  While not for everyone, I kind of like the rough-shod, gritty way European movies are put together. There's also some unexpected humor in it, and the bad guys were all equally creepy and gross without them having to show us in too much detail just how disgusting they are. Some things are better left to the imagination, and this movie let your mind fill in obvious blanks.

                  The end tied into the beginning, bringing the movie to a full circle, but it was still a bit shocking in the way the director's did it. I can't say more than that without giving too much away.

                  Overall, definitely worth seeing.
