I never heard of this movie. I really like Jim Caviezal as an actor. Coming into the movie, I suspected mediocre acting at best, a semi-terrible script, and illogical actions and decisions from the characters - keeping in mind that I had never heard of this movie until I stumbled across it by chance.
The acting was better than I expected. Plus. The basic story-line and subplots were interesting. Plus. The script was not great but still good enough where it didn't even matter. Plus. The characters did things that seem implausible - but the action and suspense of the movie was so well done that that simple flaw was easily ignorable (for me anyways). So, plus. Sure, Jim ended up seriously handicapped... but keep in mind that some fathers would fight for their family's safety despite their injuries or pain. In reality, people have been known to do pretty amazing things despite their lack or military training or fighting expertise.
So, if you have stumbled across this film and wonder if its worth giving a try but don't know because this movie is one of those that never made it to the big screen, this is my opinion. Try it anyway. What this movie has to offer is simple entertainment in the form or action and suspense, despite a few possible shortcomings.
Overall, I really enjoyed this movie. And no, I'm not getting paid to write a good review for this movie..... :)
