When I first read the synopsis, I thought, "Are they serious?" So it sounds a tad far-fetched. So maybe more than a *tad. But overall, this was a decent action flick. The best ever? No. But better than many I've watched. It feels like a 24 type movie--when the school phone rang with the 24 scene-change ring-tone, I had to chuckle. This flick lacks Jack Bauer, but the characters are likable, and the actors did great with what they had to work with, though I've never heard of any of them. Many action actors can fight but they can't act. Not true with Matthew Reese. I haven't seen anything else he's been in, but he did a good job with his part. Jennifer Klekas was a hot damsel in distress and she kicked some a$$, too. Although the storyline could be improved to make it more believable, the lines worked with this story. But how many action flicks are all that believable anyway? If you like 24 or some of Jean-Claude's flicks or anything from the Die Hard franchise, you'll probably enjoy this movie. The action sequences were fast-paced and raw. Mostly hand-to-hand combat and not really any explosions. There was a blend of evasion, shooting, and mixed-martial arts. One realistic thing about this movie is the number of bad guys the hero took on simultaneously. It wasn't like a Chuck Norris film where guys stand in a circle holding their guns and only attack one at a time. A Navy Seal could have reasonably handled the amount of assailants that came at this guy. If you're looking for a deeper storyline or character development, keep looking. But enjoy this movie for what it is...a lone hero saves the day. Kudos to the cast and crew for putting together a decent flick on a presumably low(er) budget.
