Good Remake
24 August 2019 | by gpxdlrSee all my reviews

Benny did a good job. The 'hero' did his role as a regular working guy who got THAT phone call. The guns should have ran out of ammo at the airport shoot-out many times but no one reloaded. The Interpol leader was not good though, overacting his meanness to silliness to ridiculous. In CELLULAR, I like Jason S. better as the lead bad guy and, of course, Macy stood out in his role.
