An ex-CIA agent and his estranged daughter are forced on the run when his employers erase all records of his existence, and mark them both for termination as part of a wide-reaching international conspiracy.

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 »

Nabil. He's helping me.
Yeah. Helping you with what?
'Without voices.' It's my next photo essay. You know, people make a life here because we screwed up whatever country they're from.
Don't get caught up in other people's problems.
Boy, what a world this would be if everyone thought like you.
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.
