The characters are likeable and you slowly get to know each of them. Also, the fight scenes are great particularly with the added superhuman strengths.

One of the main character’s voice is so squeaky and forced, it can get quite grating after awhile. There are several scenes with scantily clad women and it’s not afraid to do close-ups.
