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.

If I have to describe this movie with just one word, this will be: "flat".
It is when a movie tries so hard to be original when you know that it will fail miserably in doing so.
From the start the movie is victim of a thousands clichés that on and on progress from worse to unbearable as the movie end.
There is no character progression whatsoever, dialogs are flat, there are no indications of a script, there is none in fact.. Two sides looking for a briefcase that contains a "something" that is not even mentioned in the end is a pathetic attempt as a plot resource.
Even worse is the fact that Bruce Willis is non-existent in the movie, he is basically just for the sake of putting his face in the front cover of the movie.
Sigourney tries so hard with SO little, she surely doesn't need to accept this kinds of roles, specially with movies such as this one.
There are so many plot holes and incoherences that I completely lost all my interest 50% into the movie, for example, in the first 40 minutes of action, our main character was surrounded by cops as soon as he displays a gun, he couldn't move without being surrounded by cops, he even manage to have a warrant order for arrest from the local police, but, incredibly enough, the last 40 minutes of the movie we see car crashes, tourist and local people being killed for no reason, shooting in the streets, so on and so forth with ZERO cops, totally ridiculous!
The movies is a pathetic attempt at an action movie, flat and excessive in violence for no other reason than the lack of a good script.
It doesn't even deserve a 2 in my scale, since any B-movie will surpass this one very easily.
My advice, do not waste your time on this one, it's flat, boring, very unoriginal, being done a million times before and much better.. if you want to see real action with a good script, please, rent or take out of your personal collection the first Die Hard, you will be much more entertained, even if you saw it a hundred times.
Total waste of good actors.
1 out of 10, horrible.
