Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
An action thriller starring Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver… this movie should be amazing. Sadly, it is not. I was genuinely surprised at how bad this movie is. The script is all wrong, the action sequences are dull, and the acting is nowhere close to the level you would expect from these blockbuster-name actors. I don’t know what happened here, if there were problems behind the scenes or issues with the creative team or some other type of production dilemmas, but this movie is a sad, sad shell of what it should have been.

Final Grade: D-
