All of the outdoor and tram scenes were filmed in Brussels, even though several parts of the film are situated in Antwerp. The traffic signs are in two languages and the tram is of the MIVB/STIB the local public transport service. See more »
When Ben and Amy arrive at the Antwerp Central station and get off the train the sign at the platform says "NIET INSTAPPEN" which means "DO NOT BOARD", however people are boarding the train. See more »
I am a big fan of this genre, a genre that has been almost soaked of its originality, like most thriller i have watched, it didn't surpass the Bourne series but it was a series of clichés that was more comforting than worrying, Aaron Eckhart gives a very good performance as the lead character Ben Logan.
Liana Liberato gives a genuinely good performance as Eckharts estranged daughter Amy, who has been persuaded by Logan to leave her grandfathers custody in America in order to move to Belgium, to be with him.
The film starts off quite slow, but when the credits ran i was very happy with what i had witnessed, a good addition to the thriller genre.
