This high octane thriller focuses on Lucas, (Sam Worthington), a solitary assassin, hired to kill a young woman, Ella, (Odeya Rush). When he can't bring himself to pull the trigger the plan falls apart, setting in motion a twisted game of cat and mouse. Now both are marked for death and forced to form an uneasy alliance. Relentlessly pursued across Europe, their only hope for survival is to expose those responsible for brutally murdering her family and bring them to justice.
Odeya Rush was cast after Hailee Seinfeld scheduling conflicts couldn't be resolved. See more »
10m50 into the movie you see the number plate of the jeep. It's supposed to be from Switzerland but there doesn't exist a state with the abbreviation "GN" neither are there letters below, numbers only. See more »
[in the trunk, voice trembling]
Hello? Are you there? Why aren't we moving? What's happening?
[straining as he's getting ready to shoot heroine in the driver's seat]
Just... Talk to me.
I don't know what to say.
Tell me about your father.
I hate my dad. All reason I'm in this stupid trunk is 'cause of him! It's all his fault... Such an asshole. Then my mom dies and he marries a total bitch. God I hate them... They don't even want me around.
Sometimes dads make mistakes.

We've seen similar themes many times over in movies through the years. Here Sam Worthington portrays Lucas, a hired assassin and drug addict who can't bring himself to kill his next assignment, who's the 16-year-old Ella, played by Odeya Rush. Of course, this makes the man who hired Lucas (Allen Leech) very unhappy and so Lucas and Ella must try and escape through Europe from those killers who want to eliminate them.
There's plenty of wooden dialogue and formulaic plot elements here. However on the positive side I was interested enough in the film to want to see how it would all turn out, and it does present its viewers with quite the poignant ending.
Overall, nothing really new here for this genre, but the pacing kept me engaged throughout.
