If this action/thriller movie had a more appropriate title, it would
have generated a larger audience…in my opinion.
The movie begins with the oldest son Will Shaw (Henry Cavill) flying
to Spain to spend a week vacation with his family on their sail boat.
He is met by his silent, reserved, father Martin (Bruce Willis)
Travelling with the Shaw family is Dora (Emma Hamilton) the girlfriend
of Will’s younger brother Josh (Rafi Gavron).
Will goes into town for some supplies, when he returns he discovers no
one on the boat,
his family is gone. Will can’t understand what
happened, to his family. He is afraid, but at the same time determent
to find why his family’s been kidnapped. This begins Will’s dangerous
experience. He learns his dad is not a cultural attache, that he
claimed to be, to his family, but a CIA operative.
Sigourney Weaver plays a real bad ass rogue CIA director, who’s gun
never seems to run out of bullets. She plays her role beautifully,
with calm authority, free from any agitation. She wants a mysterious
briefcase she had given to Martin Shaw returned. If you are a Bruce
Willis fan, you will be disappointed in his brief appearance on
screen. He has a few lines and that’s
During Will’s quest to find his family, he’s been told if he does not
return the mysterious briefcase, which every one seems to want, his
family will die. In his desperation to make sense of why this was
happening, Will unearths a dark family secret, that’s been kept from
him and his brother.
The movie started off o.k. but became confusing, and unclear who the
bad guys were.The plot of the CIA was contrived and unbelievable.
A guy with no experience, beats a CIA team all alone……….Hello!!!
