Goofs

According to the distance of the Gatling gun, a slight change of its shooting angle will produce a large difference between the shots that hit the buildings. The machine gun is moved at a relatively large angle, but the shots hit the building within a distance of about 1 meter, which is physically incorrect and cannot be achieved according to the distance of the machine gun.

Denzel challenges Neeson for the title of World's Oldest Action Figure
2 October 2016 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Don't misunderstand.

Both Liam Neeson and Denzel Washington are in their 60s, both have defied the laws of Physics by starting brand-new careers as Action Heros late in life. and both are charismatic and talented enough to pull it off.

(Neeson with the Taken series plus a few other assorted action roles recently; Denzel with the Equalizer franchise and this strange oater.)

Frankly, I would be happy to buy a ticket buyer for all the action roles they both can dish up. If both these gentlemen want to continue to make these sorts of pictures for the next 20 years, I promise to keep watching.

However, leaving aside the star power of the lead in this production, overall this film is a borderline remake.

The original had a better ensemble cast, better music, and better acting.

This is an "OK" remake (as many other members have opined here) with arguably better pistol-handling skills.

And still a very nice way to spend a rainy afternoon.
