I might seek out the graphic novel prior to giving this a watch. Aside from the "immortal" trope, this looks no different than a lot of the recent action films. Or maybe it's a John Wick situation where the trailer doesn't completely convey the awesomeness within?

As for the narrative, looks extremely boring and shallow, but it might satisfy lazy evening ...
