However, when I read the synopsis of this film, I thought that it was simple and much easier to accomplish for an action film. How can they mess this up? It is basically rich people hunt humans for fun and instead they have no idea they signed up an "action" hero who will turn the table on them. The idea is similar to "Surviving the Game" with Ice-T, "Running Man" with Arnold, and even the more recent "The Hunt."
You have ONE job, which is to make a fun exciting no brain action film where the action hero waste a lot of snotty bad guys. So HOW can this film fail so badly!?!?
Without giving spoilers, it is BORING BORING BORING. It just talks talks talks, while you wait for something to happen that never really happens. And the snotty bad guys? Well, you expect Willis to be the one wasting them, but instead they wasted themselves and in boring ways. BORING BORING BORING to the last minute. Even in the climax battle, it was just... YAWN.
HOW CAN ANYONE MESS UP SUCH A BASIC FORMULA IS BEYOND ME!
Sorry Willis, this is the 3rd strike. No more. $14.99 on Amazon Prime? Consider that a tip for all the wonderful films you have made in the past which entertained me.
