Solid Thriller
19 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overall this was a good solid thriller. A pretty much average employee comes to work one morning to find his office is empty and learns that the company he works for never heard of him or the office in which he worked. Pretty good start to a mystery compounded by a teenage daughter who feels, not unjustly, neglected. Both are abruptly thrust into a life and death situation with bad guys after them and the police are after them too. Most, perhaps all, the exteriors are in Belgium and it's always fun to see European cities by day and by night. Performances were all good. The main hit man was another Banat from "Journey into Fear" and all the bad guys were bad. My single big complaint, unfortunately inserting a spoiler here, is that up until a certain point in the film where we learn Mr. Eckart is an ex-CIA hit-man, he is every inch the humble office worker, completely dumbfounded and barely able to cope with even amateur tough guys. Once we establish his real identity, he becomes 007, McClane and a Terminator all in one, instantly revealing himself to be an extremely resourceful man capable not only of handling himself, but he is very creative. Too bad he couldn't have put some of that to good use early on, but then of course, we would only have had a fifteen minute short.
