Unintended Laughs.

**Don’t Waste Your Time**


Why did James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) take this job? He must have been paid handsomely. The direction wasn’t terrible. I think the script was probably the biggest downfall for this movie. The acting wasn’t great, either, though. The movie was one obvious action after another. There was never any doubt in my mind how it would end…even when the writer wanted you to think otherwise. They all tried hard; I definitely give them an “A” for effort. If you have Movie Pass and there is nothing else playing that you haven’t seen, this would’t be the worst thing you could spend your time doing. But in reality, I would recommend staying at home and watching something else… probably something like Hostage or Panic Room. Simply put, I cannot recommend this movie.
