Imdb synopsis: A frustrated office worker learns that he is the son of a professional assassin, and that he shares his father's superhuman killing abilities.

This movie was So. Bad. It was sort of a cross between Fight Club and every action movie ever. Assassins from a brotherhood given hits by a sentient weaving loom but a corruption in the ranks leads some to rethink their path. I like action movies as much as the next person, but this movie was a little too fantastical and never explained the world it was set in. 

In all honesty, I really like story lines with conspiracy theories and otherworldly shenanigans going on underneath our noses. Things we'll never know and never understand because we're not part of it. Isn't that kind of like the man's version of a princess story? Realizing that you're a part of something greater, that you were made for better things and didn't know it til someone rescued you?

Regardless, the movie making was awful. Most notably the sound mix was off- we were constantly turning the sound up (so quiet!) and down (good lord, the people down the street now know we're watching a movie). The farfetched stunts kind of took it down a peg too- curving the bullets, the car chases and so on. I don't mind suspending belief to watch some crazy moves in an action movie, but these bordered on comical.

Apparently I just wasn't the target audience for this.
