Storyline

Recalled from the battlefields of Afghanistan to identify the remains of his daughter, British mercenary Lex Walker arrives in Los Angeles to find that the body in the morgue belongs to a stranger. With his daughter now missing, Walker convinces a street-wise detective that his daughter is still alive and in danger. The two follow a trail of high-tech intrigue that leads them to his daughter's former boss, a crooked cyber-millionaire who will do whatever it takes to protect his empire - including taking down anyone who gets in his way. Driven by desperation and rage, Walker must fight his way through an army of thugs and hired killers to save the one person that means more to him than life itself. Written by Image Entertainment

Indecipherable
14 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As others have said the basic plot is simple. Daughter reported dead, dad says it isn't her, dad goes on rampage to find daughter. Not the same as Taken but obviously an attempt to vary the theme.

Starting with the actors there is the basic problem of being able to understand them. Everything they say is muffled and guttural sounding. Even when they can be understood their lines don't make any sense.

The plot also seems very poor. I know they were trying to ride the Taken wave but there's no way any father would react the way the main character does. One example is when he visits the office his daughter worked at. He talks to the boss, gets mad, and beats up the security guards. Why? The security guards are just doing their job escorting him out. He has no further business in the building. So why stop on his way out to beat them up and get arrested. Ahh, so he can meet the police working the case of the actual dead girl. Why didn't he go there directly?

The camera work also seems very poor. It's a rare scene to get a good view of an actors face during what should be intense emotional moments. Maybe I shouldn't fault the camera guy. The actors never varied their facial expressions so maybe it was an attempt to hide what poor acting jobs they were doing.

Over all you can expect random tough guy lines and violence that makes no sense. I made it part way though the movie and turned it off. It's just a loud indecipherable mess.
