Trivia

In the movie, the Latin phrase which Jack reads from his ancient Roman knife is: "leginum convictio scientia veritate." This phrase is very significant because it is read by Jack while sitting in an alley after fleeing his apartment with the clear intention to disappear forever and let his daughter die at the hands of her abductors. Jack picks up the knife and squeezes it while thinking about his past in the Roman army and reading the Latin inscription on the knife. In an instant he changes his mind and decides not to run and abandon his daughter. So, he packs the knife in his bag and in the next scene he surprises his "girlfriend" by asking her to help rescue his daughter. Ultimately he rescues his daughter, confronts the God of the Old Testament and walks away from an opportunity to eat his foe. So, the Latin phrase on the knife caused Jack to value his daughter's life and in that small way he reconnected with humanity.

The Latin phrase means: "Legion: Certainty of belief and knowledge of truth." When Jack grips the knife and thinks about this quote, he recalls the fellowship of battle when he was a part of something larger than himself and when he fought for things he knew were true. That inspires him to rescue his daughter in order to honor his long-ago commitment to do what he knows is right. This interpretation is consistent with his later comment that he is not rescuing his daughter for her sake or even in order to confront his enemy. He said, "I'm doing this for me." So, the Latin phrase inspired Jack to take action and act with integrity rather than to run away and continue to ignore his fundamental need for human contact. The Latin quote and Jack's reaction to it constitute a hopeful note in Jack's struggle to recapture his humanity. See more »

Goofs

Jack recites a phrase in Vulgate Latin, "Leginum... Convictio... Scientia... Veritate," to mean basically, "Knowledge of the law, conviction of the truth." In actuality, this Latin translation is gibberish. "SCIENTIAM LEGIS CONVICTIONEM VERITATIS" would be the more appropriate way to write it (Romans didn't use punctuation or lowercase letters) and it would sound like "shy-EN-ti-em le-JI-s cum-VE-SI-tinam uer-ee-TA-tis." A character as old as Cain who lived during the time of the Romans would have spoken it fluently, and even if it was a little rusty, it wouldn't translate to gibberish. See more »

Quotes

Cara: I didn't know you had a daughter until recently. Where is she, by the way?
Jack: Probably with her mother at this point.

Undeserved low rating
3 May 2016 | by hurricane_sanSee all my reviews

Netflix has predicted I would like this movie. Because of all the awful reviews I found I've waited for months until I finally played it. I'm here to offset the score a bit.

This dark anti-hero tale has been interesting from the beginning to the end. I found it consistent, unpredictable and well acted. As violent as it can be, I curiously found it subtle on some layers. Reminiscing, I don't remember many special effects which means, in my humble opinion, they were used with measure and when appropriate.

If you can watch a movie without something cheaply exiting or exploding at the screen every few minutes and without every detail spoon-fed you may want to see this one.

I will definitively recommend it around.
