Polar on NETFLIX

Watched this yesterday. It's about an Assassin trying to retire. Lots of tits and ass, lots of killing, gore and a pretty good ambush scene. Not sure if I would watch it again though.

I would watch the next installment. I liked the actor playing the Black Kaiser (Mads Mikkelsen) and Katheryn Winnick is also in it (Lagertha from "Vikings.) Just like Stopp700 says sums it up.

It's entertaining, and yes, lots of T&A.

I think I liked the fact it was in Montana more than anything else.

It’s like Guy Ritchie, Quinton Tarantino and Rob Zombie got together, did a bunch of stepped on coke and wrote this script.

The “hipster death squad” pissed me off....

It had a lot of potential.

Yes, but unfortunatly it wasn't exploited and it ended up being one of the most stupid kill-movie I ever saw...

Mads Mikkelsen is a great actor and pretty solid in this.

But otherwise it felt like a slap-sticky wannabe John Wick.

Speaking of which, why wasn’t Mads Mikkelsen cast in John Wick 3?

Halle Berry? The second she opened her mouth she failed as a Bond Girl.

WTF?!?

She opened it for the wrong reason.

I think the first time I saw him was in a Bond movie or maybe Mission Impossible. I agree Mads is a great actor!

If you like Mads Mikkelson, then watch the TV serie "Hannibal".
This is some heavy shit....
