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./...

Contrived and predictable
13 January 2018 | by Gino CoxSee all my reviews

"Acts of Violence" suffers from a really poorly written script that relies heavily on tropes and plot devices borrowed from other films, including "Taken" and "Casino Royale." The villains are into everything, kidnapping, human trafficking, prostitution and drugs, including selling narcotics intended for use on rhinos. Their motivations seem to be to do whatever might make a visually interesting scene. It's largely contrived and predictable. The movie is a sequence of scenes we've seen before, but executed without panache and little logic. It's part teenage fantasy fulfillment for middle-aged gun nuts, part DTV low-budget actioner, part morality play with the subtlety of an Aesop fable. The actors do as well as they can with the material provided, but the script seems something that even Steven Segal would reject for one of his recent Eastern European productions. Production values aren't too terribly bad, but suffer from over-reliance on jiggly-cam shots. With some fifty-thousand screenplays written each year and a huge catalogue of scripts that haven't been produced, one would think they could have found better material.
