The public scenes had good potential, but failed because of the language barrier, which should have been anticipated. I like the public scenes in bars or public places with some public interaction, not the Armory shoots, this one came close but failed to deliver.
I agree with torretxt, it is becoming mechanical. The way the people reacted when the woman was walked into the bar shows this clearly. It seems most of the people there must have been Armory people or they were expecting/waiting for this to happen. That explains the audience not reacting. I agree that many earlier scenes were a lot better.
