On the raid on the chemical plant, Stratton carries a rifle with a grenade launcher. Yet when they're attacked by overwhelming forces, he never uses the grenade capability, in a specific response scenario where it would be employed. This was a carefully planned operation where all gear is selected purposefully, so it's unlikely that he grabbed it at the last minute, and neglected to bring grenades. See more »

Honestly this movie just felt like it was ticking off a checklist. Gun shoot out. check. Car chase. check. Underwater scene. check. It just kept going.
I went into the film with a good expectation especially from such a well known cast, but it fell flat. No chemistry among the cast, Dominic Cooper just didn't have the presence or physicality you would expect of a SBS Agent. The villain was underwhelming and even at the end of the film I'm still not sure what the motive was.
Even with all the great locations and scenery, it couldn't carry the bland and unimaginative story line. Do not watch.
