Goofs

During a final scene in the movie, Big Nick is seen, from a front camera shot, visibly holding his handgun with his right hand and supporting the grip with his left. However, when the camera cuts to an "over the shoulder" shot, the handgun is now being gripped in his left hand and supported by his right. This camera shot transition happens several times during this scene and each time the handgun switches hands. See more »

More holes in the plot than a brick of Swiss cheese
4 February 2018 | by Top_Dawg_CriticSee all my reviews

In Christian Gudegast's directorial debut, he did better in directing, than what he's know for, which is writing. There were more clearly obvious holes in the plot than a brick of Swiss cheese. His screenwriting of Gerard Butler's character was way too overboard. It was still a fun flick to see, but lost much potential with the sloppy writing. What is more laughable are all the 8, 9 and 10 reviews for this film... are the producers that dumb not to think anyone can click on a user name and see this film was the only one they rated - clearly fake reviews. This film is a generous and honest 7/10 from me.
