Great acting, amazing special effects, and wonderful plot
I loved this movie. Granted, I only watched it for Selina Gomez, but after I watched it I was amazed. The acting is great, you can really see the fear and the excitement of the actors faces. When an explosion happens or a car nearly hits them, you can see the fear and surprise on the two main actor's faces. The car chases are fast and very realistic. Lots of cars hitting other cars. Though the number of times they avoid the police chasing them, and the routes that take to avoid them, is a little unbelievable. The relationship that develops between Selina and the male actor is interesting. The development of a relationship under extreme stress was well acted and very realistic. So, other than the sheer number of times they avoid the police, and some of the ways they do so, this movie was very realistic and believable, which is very important for me with regard to an action movie. There is not gore, or explicit violence, but there are car chases, explosions, avoiding the police, an abduction, and some gunfights make the PG-13 rating accurate. Altogether a very enjoyable movie I would recommend to anyone who likes action movies
