So bad.....
28 December 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I try to avoid reading reviews before watching a movie but this time I thought I'd do the opposite. A mixed bag of reviews didn't help so I watched it. Wooden acting, poor script, forced dialogue, no chemistry between any of the actors and that kid who played the little girl was sooooo bad but maybe not all her fault. No indication of where the movie is set unless you recognise the CN Tower, which tells you it's Toronto.

It took a long time to build up to any sort of action and the climatic end was a bit of a damp squib, and they all looked like they couldn't wait to be shot! Too many glaring errors from start to finish but the most obvious is when Cuba is shot in his left shoulder. A few minutes later, he meet the drug boss and......the bullet hole in his jacket his gone! Even worse, when his jacket is removed, the left sleeve has no hole or blood and he can lift his left hand without any sign of pain.

I guess miracles do happen as when they arrive at the church, his left sleeve and his hand and fingers are covered in blood!

It's a shame to see someone of Cuba's calibre drown in such dross. An Oscar winning actor reduced to acting with people who are not even worthy of being called amateurs. IMO - Jerry Maguire, Outbreak and Men of Honor were his three best and last ever decent films he made.

I hope the tide turns for him...and soon.
