User Reviews

questionable plot, enjoyable action
23 January 2015 | by thefolenangelSee all my reviews

Bryan Mills, this guy just can't get a break. Ultimately we can say this guy is bad luck Brian.

I have a few questions for the plot, most important is, where did the boyfriend of the daughter go, for the whole movie?Other than that you can not say that the movie is bad, however is not a plot masterpiece.

This movie is kinda indifferent towards itself. Nelson has to use his "skills" one more time, we see action, explosions and naked ladies.

However the feeling that this movie is made for profit does not leave us, during the whole cinematic experience. The movie feels empty, both of fun and development.

The best thing about this is probably Nelson, who at this age still can look as bad ass as ever.

Final judgment: enjoyable, but don't have big expectations.
