The world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla, aka The Black Kaiser (Mads Mikkelsen), is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him silenced.

Isn't his former employer Carlsberg?

Man, John Wick really kicked off a slew of knock offs, riffing on that films world of eccentric, almost super-powered assassins. This does feel like it might be trying a little too hard.

This is a kick-ass movie.
Beats John Wick, easily.
Has a decent story for a start!

Anyone seen this yet? I realise it's not officially on Netflix until 25th February but has anyone seen it yet and is it any good?

I have seen it. It's a thoroughly entertaining movie, even though it has actually a fairly long runtime for this type of movie - 105 mins or so.

Some of the scenes with the assassin team were cringeworthy, but overall its entertaining.

Was eagerly awaiting seeing this as I do like Mads Mikkelsen.
Very enjoyable and violent. A more bloody John Wick type of action movie.

Not sure if I can take the film seriously.
I thought most of the scenes with Mads Mikkelsen were quite good but any scene with Matt Lucas was absolutely ridiculous. And the team of assassins were also sh1te.
Some good action in it but for me it was a partly decent movie and a panto combined.
Wouldn't watch it again.
I don't think it's ridiculous
Different strokes for different folks I suppose.
I watched this last year I think, after avoiding it due to bad reviews. Mads really is an excellent actor so I didn't really want to see him do a bad turn, but pandemic boredom got the better of me.
I found it mostly odd, as in his character was interesting enough but everything else was just poor. It did introduce me to Ruby O Fee however so for that I give it an ultimate pass.
