Polar

Action Crime


 

A top assassin is close to retirement. Instead of paying him his retirement benefits, his employer sends a team of young killers after him.

"Polar" is a blood-spattered adventure. The way this film has been shot makes it very clear it was originally a graphic novel and it translates to the screen quite well. The story is a slow burn, and for what it is, the run time is a little long. But there's always just enough action and gore to keep you invested as our emotionless leading man exacts revenge upon his foes. The cast is excellent and the soundtrack is intriguing, making for an enjoyable overall experience. Ice ice baby.
