  • With a conscience by 7

    Our main character may be on the wrong side of the law, but he does have a conscience. Actually he probably thinks he's doing good things all along. He even says so at one point, which brings up the question if he deliberately ignores what he does or if he was just gullible.

    Whatever the case, the movie is quite by the numbers ... but in an Austian setting (not to be confused with Australia!). The accent tells you this - if you understand them. But it is also filled with cliches and ... well not good CGI. Although the latter can work, especially if you give the movie some slack, considering it is only low budget, it is ok. Overall nothing new and the lead does not help elevate this either (imho)
