EN 5 Second Review:

A thrill ride of an action movie that is what it is. If you like Wahlberg and his typical action movie this is definitely for you. A well done action adventure with a great mix of humor and action. If you are looking for subtle acting and drama this is not for you though.



Chris (Mark Wahlberg) argues with Kate (Kate Beckinsale).
