Goofs

The tiny cylinder implanted in the girl's hand is too small to be a GPS tracking device. It resembles a RFID chip. The latest RFID technology can be read at about 50 feet maximum. A functional GPS device like that you would attach to a bicycle or pet collar is at least 3/4 inch x 4 inches. See more »

Quotes

Deklan: What now for the hollow-hearted soldier?/When the beast of battle digs in its claws and a soul sets sail in eternal pause./Survival's true cost is growing older./Where to for the man without a mission?/When the cries of combat cease to sound and the ones once brave all lie in the ground./The warrior's new war is attrition./What hope an entire war cherish?/To brave a new battle or to perish.
Deklan: Brother... /When you raise your shield,/So will I./Sister... /When you charge at the enemy,/So will I./...

This film was mishandled from an advertising standpoint.

Acts of Violence (2018) This is an action film about a woman kidnapped by human traffickers. Her fiance and his ex-military brothers set out to track her down and save her before it is too late. It stars Bruce Willis, Mike Epps, Cole Hauser, Shawn Ashmore, Sophia Bush and Melissa Bolona. It has received generally unfavorable reviews and hasn't done well at the box office. This film was mishandled from an advertising standpoint. Sure, Bruce Willis is a selling point, but unless he's the main star, he shouldn't be advertised as such. The film itself is pretty good. It's a common theme recently popularized by the Taken series. Someone has been kidnapped or killed and our hero/anti-heroes come to the rescue and/or seek revenge. Throw in a cop who's trying to do things through legal means, and you have a film. It can be executed well, i.e. the aforementioned Taken. It can also be managed poorly, there are too many of these to list. This film falls in the middle.
