When Henry Cavill turned up on set, he had just finished shooting Immortals (2011) and came sporting an extremely muscular and ultra-ripped physique. Director Mabrouk El Mechri told him that he had to play an ordinary man and that his current body would be completely wrong for the character. Henry Cavill had to lose all the muscle tone and mass that he gained over the previous six months to get his body to look like that of an average man. He did it by eating and drinking a lot and not working out. See more »
Will pulls and releases the slide on his semi-automatic pistol twice (once in the lavatory and once outside the uncle's flat), after he's already fired it in earlier scenes. This would have ejected a round already in the chamber. See more »
Put the gun down, Will. You're scared, and scared people holding guns in my face, that scares me.
Well, this is going to be a nerve-wracking conversation.

This movie just didn't work for me. The screenplay is so lame and just doesn't create a consistent and great movie. Where a good movie creates an arc for a lead, this is a good example why that rule should be obeyed.
Cavill is lacking any kind of likability, and never seems to create a character we are cheering for. He is a spoiled brat that doesn't seem to get along with also not likable Brucy Willy. Because? Because? Ahhhh, daddy wasn't that great in the past.
What is this movie about? A briefcase with 'important documents'....? Whooo? Exciting. But if this is the MacGuffin, what is the overall idea? Is it about Cavill's relationship with his father? Or the rest of his family.
Well you probably won't have the answer because it is missing from the movie. The Cavill at the end of the movie is hurt and has rescued his family, but is still the same guy. No change at all. He has a new sister, but that just covers it.
Missing chance after chance, this movie is a direct example why screen writing is a profession, and not a hobby.
Also, after seeing "Abduction" and "Cold light of day", I am seriously wondering if Sigourney has suddenly become a dyslectic or is in serious need of money. Read the F-ing script woman, you were in "Gorillas in the mist", "Alien", "The Mosquito coast" and other classic movies. Please stay away from these mediocre projects.
