Trivia

After trailers for the film were released a social uproar occurred in Cambodia over the use of upside down Khmer lettering on the police shields. The Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts has since prohibited the film from being shown in Cambodia. Sin Chanchaya, director of the Department of Film said that the decision to ban the film had come solely based on the trailer. Chanchaya said that the Ministry had approached the film producers to edit the lettering out of the film but they had not replied by the time of the decision.

Goofs

The country in question is not mentioned but supposed to be somewhere in SE Asia. Sometimes we can hear the 'rebels' speak or shout in Khmer, some signs are in Khmer but some signs are also in Burmese and then someone speaks about Kampuchea but on a few occasions we hear people speaking Thai while they have to cross the border to Vietnam. Thailand doesn't share a border with Vietnam. See more »

Unexpected... Bravo!
4 November 2015 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Going to watch a movie with Owen Wilson starring, you usually expect some kind of comedy or romance. Not this time. I was really worried that he would not be up to the task with this one, but this was not true, not true at all!

The movie was fascinating, completely plausible, filled with amazing scenes that keep you at the edge of your seat. The things that this family goes through were unimaginable but very well executed during filming.

Owen was that good that you could actually empathize with his suffering and anxiety and put yourself in his position struggling for his family. Pierce Brosnan was AMAZING! Just the right amount, just as much as needed, to complement a really thrilling movie!

Recommended for sure! Can't wait to see more stuff like that from Owen Wilson!
