  • Not bad, not great neither. Positive elements for me were the story and some action scenes… Nice to watch, and not boring at all. I only thought to see Bruce Willis in a more important role. In fact, his part was completely uneventful. What I also didn’t like, were the special effects in the final scene. It was far to obvious that some of the fire scene’s were not real at all. For me it was just an average action-thriller, worth a one time watch…

  • Willis again playing a meaningless role in a moderate movie. Is his face nowadays only used to give lousy B-movies a higher status. It was hard for me to keep my attention on this film. Things started pretty strong and I thought D `Onofrio was very convincing as the maniacal Ubermensch.

    But as the film progresses it becomes only a weak affair with a predictable end and a terrible fake-looking fire.
    What really pisses me off is the camera technology used nowadays. The cameraman needs to adjust the image every second apparently. Like : ” … oops … oh hey he went a bit to the left so ok just adjusting to the left … oh ooops a little bit down now … yehes like that yes …. oh no no no a bit up again … oops now he’s right again damn …. ok itsy bitsy to the right … yes like that …. shit up again … no down again” etc etc etc. The person who invented this can get a lifelong chronic diamia (that’s a tone higher than diarrhea).

    Positive point: 50 pennies … euh 50 Cent had a small part.

    I’ve seen much better action movies like this . So just forget about this one real soon.
