Of the movie's screenplay, Steven C. Miller said that while screenwriters Max Adams and Umair Aleem did a great job writing key details to parts of the fights, action though in a screenplay is usually just an outline. Miller said: "The script says: 'Harry [Turner (Kellan Lutz] kicks ass.' So, you have to sit down and figure out the details of exactly what that ass-kicker's doing. Simon [Simon Rhee] and his team are the best at doing that." See more »
At the beginning of the film, when Bruce Willis calls his son, after his mother is shot, he says,"go upstairs, in my dresser, on the left side"; but the gun is on the right side and is in the night table. See more »
We have reason to believe you are not who you say you are, Mr. Parker. Your wife and son, Mr. Leonard Turner, CIA. I have men posted outside their door, back in Virginia, United States.
For you to get this close, you must have friends, informants, collaborators, inside my organization. I want their names.

I'm okay with a simple mma and tits action flick, but....
But you have to stick to the formula for making what's at heart a C movie actually entertain the target audience, drunk dudes. That formula? Simple storyline, bare bones dialogue, and expertly choreographed fight scenes that come no more than five minutes apart. The script was terrible from beginning to end. Bruce Willis tells a bad guy "Don't you ever threaten my family", just before delivering the kill shot. Immediately I got a bad feeling, because the line should have been "Nobody threatens my family" in order to make sense as far continuity. That may seem like a small detail to someone who isn't a writer but trust me, words matter. The dialogue never gets better and though most of the fight scenes are okay, enough of them are badly staged that it detracts from the only thing that makes the film worth seeing. The acting was below average with the exception of Bruce Willis, who phoned it in but is still a veteran. Gina Carano was under utilized, which seems to keep happening to her. There are too many bad movies that are still a lot of fun for you to waste time on this one. 4 out of 10.
