The movie starts out pretty well, or so it seems. Well, the plot unravels quickly and we learn that Nick Harper, who's looking for his missing sister, stumbles even more quickly into the underworld of Barcelona.

Aside from the weak and predictable plot we do have some decent acting, the characters are well within the bounds of such a movie; considering both genre and budget. Unfortunately, there is no character development and the archetypes are too overbearing. We got the good cop (who leashes out in the name of good), the bad guys who are too cool for their own good and of course the hot Spanish female sidekick. And we do have that terrorist, who's parents were killed and thus he became an avenger. All those plot strings circle around the movie in order to meet at one point.

Sometimes the actors try to act larger than life, and act too tough, too sleek, whatever you want to call it. Nick is getting on with his investigation very fast and all seems to fall into place quite neatly. And even though he is a total stranger to Spain, he makes good pace. Sadly, it does no good for the movies credibility.

One thing I liked about the movie was the lack of Hollywood-style stunts, it looked almost "real", when we see a jump, or a fight; a brawl you would witness at your local bar. Nice going. I did not really care for the terrorist undertone, as we did see too many movies with that theme already.

All in all an okay movie, with no real twists or turns. No unexpected side effects, pretty straight forward. Something you wanna watch before going to bed, light and easy.
