A grim first half shows scores of kidnapped children abused as they are trained to be ruthless killers/catwalk models able to break a man's spine with one hand, who at adulthood are forced to kill each other off with impractically sized machetes in order to survive.
This bafflingly leads into a second half focussing on the romance that blooms between the only surviving assassin and a cop on sick leave when they accidentally get locked in an ice cream delivery truck together.

A perfect example of 'don't fuck with the source material and you will get a great film'. Here the source material is faithfully captured and the film is great.
Also a perfect example of 'if you're going to foist 3D on people then use it to show bullets exploding out of people's faces in extreme slow motion, soundtracked by ethereal post-rock'. Here the 3D is justified by... well, you get the idea.
