Quotes

Mrs. Capo: Now did you know that up until the 2nd century, torture was used primarily on slaves? See, they believed that the slave could only tell the truth if it was extracted from them. But over time, torture evolved to include everybody. It became a means for the good to purge the earth of evil.
Mr. Capo: My wife's a bit of a romantic, but I'm more practical. Wouldn't you say? The way I see it, the gateway to understanding is through pain. And we are that gateway.

Plot was a disappointment
25 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The acting was good. Jeffrey Dean Morgan, did a great job.

When Stitch was killed and the Courier and Anna grieved by going to bed, then I knew the plot was lame. How did the Courier find all the leads? There was never any indication...he just knew? The twist of Elvis lives and the Courier, was what one reviewer called "a muddled mess".....I agree. Then the ending with the couriers son, where did that come from and what happened to the son? The end result...the movie didn't make any sense, it didn't have a cohesive plot.

The writer/screenwriter truly failed at what could have been a very good action movie.

What a colossal waste of money for the backers.
