Best part of story, including ending:
There is a lot to unravel and at face value it is a simple concept but once you get into the heart of the movie it is more of a meta commentary of Hollywood action movie and revenge tropes.
Best scene in story:
When we find out the back history of Hans Kieslowski. It adds a very odd dimension to the character and fleshes out his motives throughout the course of the film. The scene also gives the character a bit more humanity as well.
Opinion about the main character:
The main character is very weak ,in comparison to his friends but this was intentional because it deconstructs the typical revenge movie protagonist. Overall he is likable but he is a pretty sheepish guy.
