Flawless Victory!

Another triumph for David Mamet in a completely new action drama. Mamet uses the tension between principled characters and poignant betrayal better than anyone in the business. He's famous for writing films such as "The Verdict", "Ronin", and realistic drama like "Oleanna". This takes his work into a tribute martial arts film that one might not expect but is delightful.

There are breakout performances by Chiwetel Ejiofor and Alice Braga demonstrating true acting power. Tim Allen, in a minimalist career changing role, is a controlled and compelling figure throughout. Solid support from Joe Mantegna. Everyone is authentic and direct. Amazing film.
