Conclusion: 2/5
A typical Liam Neeson film. For me this was a bit too long for what it needed to be.  I enjoyed the opening scene and did think that the film looked very promising. After such a fantastic start it then just fell flat and didn’t know what sort of film it wanted to be. It just then totally lost its way. It is like watching another Taken (2008) film and is now just getting ridiculous. Liam Neeson himself didn’t look happy doing this film and is now fed up with doing the same thing over and over again. The film as a whole made no sense at all. Do not watch the trailer as it gives everything away in just a few minutes. If you want to watch a pulse racing movie like this then I suggest you watch Speed (1994).
