Goofs

The country in question is not mentioned but supposed to be somewhere in SE Asia. Sometimes we can hear the 'rebels' speak or shout in Khmer, some signs are in Khmer but some signs are also in Burmese and then someone speaks about Kampuchea but on a few occasions we hear people speaking Thai while they have to cross the border to Vietnam. Thailand doesn't share a border with Vietnam. See more »

Finally -- an action movie without a zillion pointless explosions
2 September 2015 | by suzgotmailSee all my reviews

I went to this movie because I was curious -- Owen Wilson NOT in a comedy?? I was pleasantly surprised. Owen Wilson nailed it -- a loving father trying *desperately* to save his family. Yes, this situation has been done a zillion times before (for example, THREE "Taken" movies) -- but I've never seen it done with this much intensity. The movie's focus was not on the "action." Rather, the focus was on the interplay between the parents/kids, how they dealt with each other and the various situations, providing a deeply human touch against a horrifically inhuman background (a massacre). And it was this extreme contrast, of the human vs the inhuman, that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the movie.

Pierce Brosnan was also amazing. No plastic Kennie doll here -- Pierce Brosnan played an imperfect man trying to do the right thing. I've never seen Pierce Brosnan play such a wide range within a single role -- from off-key karaoke to ____. (I won't say it as it would be a spoiler).

I also enjoyed Pierce Brosnan's sidekick, "Kenny Rogers."

And I must say, it was refreshing to see an action movie where the only "car chase scene" involved a moped going five miles per hour.
