Close, but no cigar
16 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

The acting is fairly good, and overall it's a fairly well-done piece of work but some scenes just drag on forever that takes out the excitement that could have been.

With too much oversentimental music and some scenes that simply should have been cut down or cut out entirely and others that should never have been in slow-motion.

Most of the fires are visibly CGI'd but they still look pretty neat so I didn't mind too much.

Would have worked if it was a fast-paced 85 minute movie, but at the length it is 107 it simply gets too boring at times to truly recommend.

I mean I wouldn't advice you not to watch it on TV or anything, it does have a couple really well orchestrated action-scenes after all and it's a decent enough script, albeit simple and typical.
