assination by agents of "The Division". The Division is a shady-shadowy government organization that has been doing research into
psychic-soldiers since WWII. Often FATAL, artificial, means are used to improve these capabilities.
Dakota Fanning, plays a spindly-legged 12-year-old heavy drinker (that probably should ditch the short skirt and wear PANTS!)' is led
by a drawing to find Nick (Chris Evans the adult) to get him to find a briefcase that can lead to the END of The Division.
He was walking away from Cassie/Dakota until a Bleeder gang [that also wants this briefcase] come on the scene.
To enjoy this movie---maybe THAT is why there was NO sequel to this six-year-old movie--- you need to remember the "powers":
A Stitcher can heal or hurt.
Shifters...can change the appearance of objects.
Sniffers...can smell personal items to obtain information.
Watchers...can see the future in their drawings.
Bleeders...shouting causes bleeding and internal damage.
Pushers....implant thoughts and change memories.
Shadows....can block out watchers and sniffers.
Loopers....[I think they] may effect other's memories.
Movers.....able to control objects without physical contact.
The stunts; CGI SF/X were very good, and I found it interesting that it was filmed in HONG KONG! One of several places I've been.
I was VERY entertained by this movie... but remember it IS a MIND-game, eh?
Note: I don't care for Amazon's 0/5 star ratings hence, to me, 4 is normal/good, 5 is almost never... (should be 0,1,2 instead)
The five stars set up expectations that everything 5 is excellent and all else is crap. Bad system...
It was a good movie and I like a lot of the individual pieces. The cast is well selected. Each person really embodies their role and portray fairly fleshed out and dimensional characters. The story is interesting (I am not familiar with anything that would be source material) and seems to have a rich history that we are only getting a pinch of. This fact is not a deal breaker, I don't think that not having a full understanding of the bigger picture is a problem, it's just something you have to go with the flow. I also liked the style of the movie. The coloring and the camera work. It suggested a mature game of hide and seek, which is what the film is, so it definitely supported the theme. The locations were also well chosen, random (somewhat) ambiguous Asian city. Again, it supported the plot of the movie.
My issue with the movie is just that is seemed to be missing an element to tie the character, the story, the theme all together. They all supported one another, and each piece did a robust job, but there was just a small motivation passed "she told me to be here" to make it meld together that was missing.
I will also add that for the most part this is the kind of movie that proves why all of the actors are still working. They are really good at what they do. Chris Evans has a quality about him that makes him both the vulnerable loner and the enigmatic Big Man on Campus. Dakota Fanning, Ming-Na Wen, Djimon Hounsou, everyone in the first tier cast; all strong at what they do.
If you want to see an entertaining movie that has a lot of good work, regardless of this vague missing element, this one is still worth your time.
It's dark and brooding. There's action and conflict. The characters have depth without having a million years of backstory. It's a fun superhero-type movie, but probably not for kids.
