Generally, a surprise, a harrowing one that throws sand in your eyes, kicks you in the balls and spits on you whilst your down.
Well, that opening scene was not one I'm going to forget for a while. It's up there with the brutality of Sicario: Day of the Soldado opening scene in terms of brutality. It strips back any cinematic flare in favour of not shying away from the savagery of these atrocities.
Following the opening, it steps it down a gear but consistently reminds you through flashbacks and exposition of the viciousness of all involved which steadily warmed until it boiled over into several more heinous acts of violence.
I feel as if I've not seen Simon Baker in anything for years. It's good to see him in something different to his cheeky love interest roles.
