Comments: Not that this is supposed to be realistic, so it's not a matter of straining credulity. It's that it's cliché stupid, like bad guy talking too much with a gun pointed at, but within reach of, good guy. The thing about guns is you don't have to be that close to someone for them to be effective

I would give this a full 3 if they cut the scene of a dozen SWAT dudes chasing the beekeeper down a hall (or whatever) firing automatic weapons at him and missing. Pet peeve

Summary: One man's brutal campaign for vengeance takes on national stakes after he is revealed to be a former operative of a powerful and clandestine organization known as "Beekeepers".
