Trivia

Despite prominent billing in the credits, Bruce Willis only has about 30 minutes of total screen time. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Horrible Movie
3 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The cinematography is migraine-inducing, the directing is pathetic and the main character is laughable with the most exaggerated of acting methods. It seems the entire premise of the movie is to blur in and out of frames while affording no story, no character development and ultimately no point to over half of the existing scenes.

I did not have the opportunity to walk out of the theater because of the company I was with. However, if I could, I would have because it is simply impossible to maintain any interest in this movie. I do not think it is worth seeing anything this director makes in the future.
