When his daughter goes missing, Paul, played by Jason Patric stops at nothing to find her with the help of his daughter’s friend, Angela, played by Jessica Lowndes. Being a former assassin himself, he soon finds himself confronting the past he thought he had left behind.
Stylized and striking cinematography with the help of eye-catching lighting makes this film stand out even during its quiet scenes.
Patric’s acting is also superb. Natural and understated, making his character that much more believable.
However that’s not to say the acting talent was shared by the entire cast, with minor characters such as Korean’s pop sensation Rain, being one of the let downs, despite his minimal lines.
Thumbs up to Gia Mantegna, who plays Paul’s daughter Beth, who outshone the leading actress, Lowndes with her screen presence.
Fight sequences were a bit of a let down not even the minor appearances from Bruce Willis and John Cusack could save. Unfortunately the only saving grace came from the lighting and cinematography departments.
Dialogue became cheesy and expositional as the movie went on and could not compare to films of similar plots such as ‘Taken’.
