so much potential
16 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Positive: some of the action in this movie is so creative and realistic I can't help but wonder if any stunt persons were killed or seriously injured during shooting.

Negative: The plot is straight forward and had lots of potential. The writers had potential to make a great film but were lazy with dialogue and character development lending to the hollow action film syndrome. The holes in the plot are so ridiculous that they detract from the tension.

Ugly: The acting is terrible. I think the script is largely to blame here are the lines are so cheesy that I imagined holding a straight face was really hard.

Summary, if you're looking for a mindless action flick then this film will impress with some great sequences.
