Anders Baasmo Christiansen,
Set in the exotic terrain of the Yucatan Peninsula, NO BAD DAYS is an action/adventure film that manifests all the qualities that make for an entertaining and captivating film. The fast-pace style makes for a surprise at every turn, while the charisma and chemistry of the main characters create a romantic subplot. The story begins when evil tomb-raiders rob precious Mayan artifacts and soon face their most difficult opponent an unpredictable, rugged, ex-military operative who discovers his true self after ending 5 years in hiding. Our hero finds himself being chased through jungles, spying in underground waterways, and falling in love with an attractive, yet stubborn American woman searching for her missing mother, an archeologist who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. This gripping, action-packed, humorous tale peaks in one of the most unique and alluring tropical locations in the world, leading the two heroes on a crusade against evil forces even greater than they anticipated.

They sold this movie as being a great adventure, but to me it didn't feel that way at all. Its more of a classic relic hunter movie revolving around a kidnapping. The only exotic thing about it is that the story is set in a tropical country. The acting was sub-par and the plot tremendously predictable. They tried to make a link between the relic and 12/21/2012, but I felt this made the movie seem cheesy more than anything else.
They also market the movie with actors like Keith David and Michael Madsen, but they are barely even seen throughout the film. Michael Madsen gets around 10 minutes in 4 different scenes, and Keith David only gets 1 scene thats about 3 minutes. Thats it. I would of loved to see more of Michael Madsen.
The part I enjoyed the most was the opening scene, which has a lot of movement and underwater swimming and the couple of scenes with the main girl of the movie in a bikini.
Worth watching if you are bored on a rainy day, otherwise don't bother.
