Awful 2/10 is being nice!!
13 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A hour and and 30mins I will never get back. I was planning on giving it 1/10 but the little twist at the end notched it up to 2/10. The movie lacked suspense, thrill or action. It was pretty clear from the onset who the bad guys were and the good guys were. The acting was forgettable. The Aussie with the mustache was comical (hey mate! Howz it going mate? Everything OK mate?) Lol him and agent Ballard both got their butt kicked a couple times in the movie. Any CIA agent who accidentally watches this movie would be disgraced the were they were hilariously portrayed. There was a couple times Vinnie Jones AKA agent Ballard was caught napping, not knowing which wire to cut on the bomb or letting one of the suspects get out of sight to have his Ex fiancé conveniently placed to shoot the suspect. A true CIA agent would immediately disarm a suspect and at least shoot him in the kneecap so he/she doesn't attack them again, not agent Ballard though.

There was more action and suspense in the movie Devil Wears Prada compared to this flick. I yawned my way to the end of the movie with 13 yawns.

PS The director Brandon Nutt is truly nuts and Vinnie Jones' head should audition for the next planet of the apes movie.
