Plot: After his family is kidnapped during their sailing trip in Spain, a young Wall Street trader is confronted by the people responsible: intelligence agents looking to recover a mysterious briefcase. Runtime: 93 mins Release Date: 03 Apr 2012
There wasn't much choice when myself and my parents were deciding what to go and watch in the cinema. It was either this or The Best Marigold Hotel. We watched previews for both and they looked okay. However the only reason we ended up seeing this film was it was being shown in afternoon too. We were hooked for the hour and a half it was on. Plently of gun action and thrills throughout. Sigourney Weaver and Bruce Wilis play brilliant parts. Film kept me guessing as to who was bad guy and who wasn't. Best film on in cinema at the moment. Well worth a watch for anyone who loves a good <more>
Thriller. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family
Everyone bashes every film these days.. *sigh* The movie is brilliant, great acting throughout the film, epic and thrilling action sequences, and a good story. The writing was solid and the direction was great. I will now talk about each main actors skill in the film. Henry Cavill: Extremely solid acting, Cavill has really shown that he is an incredible actor in everything he's in. Is best films so far are Man of Steel and most certainly The Cold Light of Day. He played his character perfectly. Bruce willis: Didn't expect him to be in the film for only the first 20 minutes but he was <more>
great non-the-less. Sigourney Weaver: Fricking bad*ss as usual. The film had twists that I didn't see coming, I love that in a film. The twist and the confusion of who was good who was bad in the beginning was exciting for sure. The action was intense as was the stunts. Action: gun action, chase scenes on foot, and chase scenes with cars, both done really well. The car chase scenes were brilliant and full of action and excitement, cars being crashed, guns being fired, all and all perfection. Stunts: the stunts were thrilling! So exciting! The dangling from a building, jumping scenes, chase scenes and car stunts were all really great.All and all I don't see why all the hate! Story: 10/10 Direction:10/10 Cast: 10/10 Writting:10/10Pretty generous ratings but anything I LOVE gets 10.

awesome movie (by ashsethi)
I am writing my first review on IMDb and i was forced to write after i watched this awesome movie...If you have seen "Taken" and have liked it you will love this one. Awesome movie keeps you on the edge of the seatVery nice plot and very well executed..please watch this one and 4.8 is pretty less for a movie of this caliber..I like the protagonist of the movie as he is not a star like his father but does his best for his family. Everyone please a good role and the plot is unveiled in the end.I guarantee you watch this exciting thriller which will keep you engrossed right from the <more>
kidnapping happens till the end..you will not repent it...:
Not sure why all the bad reviews... (by snhoward24)
I have no clue why this movie has such bad reviews. I enjoyed the movie and thought it was a different type of action movie than we normally see. When I first started the movie I didn't know the main character was played by Henry Caville who is starring as Superman in the upcoming Man of Steel movie. I actually prefer his character in this movie versus the previews I've seen for Man of Steel. Anyways, I like the the idea of agents in the American government being corrupt and another country stepping in to help save the day as well as an ordinary guy. I liked how the story developed <more>
and I liked the twist of the character of Lucinda. I think people need to watch the movie for themselves instead of just going off of reviews.
Great Film, Too Good For Average IMDb "Reviewers" (by jblacktree)
The film starts fast with an ominous, eerie sense of family tensions and unease in a glorious setting, worth the price of admission alone. It writes its own cinematic language, with camera placements and framing slightly off and camera movements kinetic and unexpected. There are surprises, switchbacks, shocks, and fine acting from everyone. As for this pre-teen obsession with spotting "product placement," nothing is spotlighted in a way to garner sponsor backing, trust me. Spain and the actors look great--hot and sophisticated and summery and tense--and the young actors are <more>
attractive, the bad guys complex, the relationships original and refreshing. If your only reference for cinema is the Bourne series, stay away. If you know about movies and the syntax of cinema, a must see.
Entertaining movie, with some silly elements that spoil it (by valrogm)
I just saw this in the theater. This is all I can say without including spoilers: The movie kept me entertained throughout. I felt some tension through much of the movie and there was some suspense as well. While the overall story was good, the script was pretty weak - some scenes that were supposed to be tense actually made people laugh in the theater! The writers shouldn't be allowed to write another piece of junk like this. The acting talent was mixed.Bruce Wills did a stellar job and was very convincing. I haven't seen Henry Cavill act before actually I have, though I've <more>
never noticed him and he did good as well.This has to be said, and I'm sure everyone who saw the movie will agree with me: Sigourney Weaver was soooo unrealistic in this movie. It's like she's forgotten how act after all these years. Seriously, in one scene, she actually says "Wooooo" as she's driving an SUV into people and firing an automated weapon! No, her character isn't supposed to be a person who escaped from an asylum - the character's supposed to be extremely educated and intelligent. The knife murder by toothpick-sized frail VerÃ³nica Echegui was also a bit hard to accept can you say 'judo-chop'? . They could have at least had her use a friggin' gun.The script was pretty bad as well. In the beginning of the movie, the cops are all over the place. And later in the movie when people are running over pedestrians and firing weapons all over the place for _a_long_time_, there isn't a single cop to be found! Did they all get raptured? This movie makes me miss the old classic action movies like Die Hard, where we had only good actors, a great story, good effects and a great soundtrack. Not the crap that was Die Hard 4, but the good ol' trilogy.
Action and Very Good Production ... (by jldouglas-527-342389)
I was surprised! This is actually a good movie, and once again a reminder that I'm not relying on "critics"; they are biased and closed minded. I think they were mostly Bruce Willis fans thinking this was another Die Hard type of movie. Most of them complained about Bruce's appearances not being enough. Well, to those critics, I say they missed the mark. The production was top notch, the chase scenes entertaining and the plot decently threaded throughout the movie. Henry Cavill and Veronica Echugui along with Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver delivered, and I enjoyed this <more>
movie from beginning to end! I'm going to buy it and put it in my library!
This movie was a good CIA Spy Thriller. (by belindar-2)
I enjoyed the movie because it had a plausible plot. The action was better than Borne style spy thriller. Bruce Willis was the type of spy you can believe in and it was not labored in any fashion. The movie took on several twists and turns which you could believe because they were ones that you would never guess. I like the actors in the movie because they were real and not phony. Weaver was a believable villain with a heart of stone. The movie ended right and hopefully there will be a sequel. No matter what the bad reviews are, I believe you will enjoy this type of thriller if you like <more>
thrillers. It is very realistic. The action kept the movie moving in a fast pace and did not slow the story at all.
