Goofs

When Clegg (Gina Bellman) is running to escape the explosion climbing up the elevator shaft, she barges through a pair of doors. In the shot showing this, you can easily see a camera that is mounted in an open section of the floor on the left side of the screen. The following shot is what was filmed from that same camera.

Generic + Weird = Fun
2 February 2014 | by (Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Ohh… This movie is special. I mean, when it ended I felt almost like characters in the movie. Maybe it is just me, but watching this movie takes me on the other side of the screen. Maybe people who designed the sets knew something many people don't, maybe the architecture was simple and realistic so it was easier to identify with it, maybe composer did something unorthodox, or was there any music at all?... maybe I was in a special mood, I don't know!

But what I do know, is that despite being a quite generic action movie (hits almost everything in the cliché check-list) it has some amazing atmosphere which actually works fantastic with such special kind of acting (phlegmatic I would say) and some weird-cheap special effects. But overall, it is enjoyable and I recommend you watch it and I recommend you do it alone, for perfect experience.
