The Gunman is over-complicated
5 second plot: Jim did some very bad things 8 years ago in Congo. And his past has come to haunt him. He doesn't care very much about himself but he's not about to let the love of his life get dragged into his mess.
5 second review: The action is solid. He's got some great fighting skills. But the story is too extensive. I like a complicated plot but it is completely unnecessary (and distracting) for a simple action flick like this. I also never like it when they make the hero soft. That's where they dropped the ball on the Liam Neeson wannabe checklist.
