I know what you're doing.
You're trying to save him.
I am not.

If you've never seen a movie before then this is probably tolerable. Its always nice to see Elisabeth Shue. Jennifer Lawrence is definitely a leading lady of the future but this does no-one associated with it any favours.
Its just too clichéd, too predictable to be of any entertainment value.
In fairness I didn't totally hate it, but it wasn't involving. Its not a movie that you'll ever watch again or buy the DVD/ BR.
This is no fault of the cast but the script which means that you'll know how the movie ends before it is even half over.
Unless you're a rabid Lawrence fan then I wouldn't bother with this until there is a Netflix or DVD release.
