The expatriate and widower Ben Logan has moved from New York to Anrwep with his estranged teenage daughter Amy Logan to work for the technology corporation Halgate Group.

Goofs

One of the scenes (when Ben has just discovered his entire company has disappeared) is supposedly shot in Antwerp. However traffic light posts are painted red and white indicating the scenes weren't filmed in Flanders where traffic light posts are black/yellow. Googling a hotel name in the background reveals the scene was actually shot in Brussels. See more »

Ben Logan: Don't get caught up in other people's problems.
Amy Logan: Boy, what a world this would be if everyone thought like you.
Ben Logan: And you shouldn't be hanging out there.

Who's voting here? What do we ask of an action/thriller? 1. Action 2. Suspense that will keep you interested. Hopefully - this can be done intelligently. To do this with intelligence - and good acting - are bonuses. This Film delivered on all these counts. Post-film/editing sometimes don't find the perfect fit and the camera filters/ video are on the dark side (not enough light). Some plot details are muffled along the way but it does not get in the way of the entertainment value. The cast, story, intent and execution - are all there. Emphasis of genre is on "thriller" with some fairly good, fast action scenes that appear professional/credible. Main actors all performed well. Secondaries performances were... secondary. This film will not disappoint.
