Don't bother

In short, this movie is bad. It's not awful, but it's somewhere between "bad" and "terrible." Here's why: The biggest problem this movie has is that the characters have no depth, all of the other issues are secondary to this, but the characters lack any real emotion.

Now, character depth is one thing, but the movie itself is simply bad. The special effects are terrible, they remind me of Rambo (the first one), but even that movie had semi-realistic muzzle flashes.

The audio track for the firearms in this movie is completely wrong. The small caliber pistols sound like large caliber pistols, and the rifles sound like 22s. I'm sorry, but this is 2014, there are numerous audio tracks of guns being fired, it's not that hard to make a realistic shootout in 2014 when everyone and his brother can use over the counter software to make a realistic shootout on their own PC.

Finally, the story.

I didn't want to write about the story, not because it's dreadful, but because like the characters, and the special effects, it's very unremarkable. Within five minutes of the movie starting, you will already know how it ends, the space in between is just a homogeneity of poor acting and poor effects. But the story is your run of the mill boy + girl + crisis story.

If you have seen any recent action movie where the hero rides off with the girl at the end, you've likely seen all you will see here.
