With action films it seems that sometimes the story writers feel they don’t have to really try. They seem to think that if they can get some recognisable stars that can put in a charismatic performance then it’s a safe bet that they will have a hit. Sometimes this can pay off, if the action scenes are big enough and the viewers are mesmerised into enjoying the big explosions and gun battles taking place in front of them, they won’t notice that they’ve seen the story many times before. This is the problem with The Cold Light of Day.
Will is on holiday with his family in Spain, but his thoughts are back home where he is being threatened with bankruptcy.
