Goofs

The menu in the diner (seen while the sheriff is talking after he kills the fly) is labeled "Wallace Barbeque" not Gabes Diner as the sign outside says. You can see how they tried to hide it by turning the menus inside out. See more »

So, so sci fi auctioneer.
4 May 2017 | by (wales) – See all my reviews

Even though I enjoyed the film I was left thinking that the director wasn't sure what to do with the action scenes. Cam who is a black belt in real life and has shown his thing on movies that he has done previously gets barley any unarmed combat time in this movie and I think it was a big misopportunity by the director. There are quite a few action scenes in the movie, cars, gun play, Tec and these are done pretty good, but you feel as if something is missing. Rhys Meyers was wasted throughout the movie. If you liked films like time bomb then you will like this film. This film was a combination of The Manchurian Candidate and Time bomb, with the latter's budget. Overall not bad but when you watch it, you will see that it was a big misoppourtunity.
