Enjoyable if unsurprising.By Trollman (3 reviews) , 30 Apr 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]An enjoyable and well made if unsurprising thriller in the style of 3 days of the condor. Eckhart makes a good leading man protecting his daughter on the run from the CIA.

Eckhart Was WoodenBy Eggbanjo (2 reviews) , 30 Nov 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideToo similar to Taken, but Eckhart had no charisma and didn't convince me as a CIA Agent. To be honest, I couldn't care less about his moody daughter. Quite a dull film considering it was billed as an action/adventure stress.
Really enjoyable & good surprisesBy Tambeck (3 reviews) from Birmingham , 16 Nov 2013We loved this film. Good story line & plenty of action. Not similar to taken has other people have sugested.
Good plot, right to the endBy a customer , 02 Nov 2013I watched this film with no preconceptions - just hired on the strength of it's 3*... and I'm glad I did. The plot is well thought out and well structured. There's 'appropriate' action throughout - unlike the usual bullet fests that Hollywood seem to inject into their films these days - and the action lends good atmosphere and accent to the underlying story. Even the relationship between the main character and his estranged daughter is well done, as her reactions are generally believable, given the line of work she discovers her father is involved in. Overall a really enjoyable film. Would highly recommend.
A good watch!By Smartstring (38 reviews) , 02 Nov 2013OK film, shades of Taken,Die Hard, and Bourne having said that they were all good films too. The explosion was 'satisfying' and just deserts
Bourne LiteBy JPG2007 (86 reviews) , 10 Oct 2013This is an OK thriller - there did seem to be shades of the Bourne films and Taken, but these were both such good films they are going to influence others. Lead actors are good, but I did find the blu-ray video quality poor in places.
