One Sentence: It's like Saw with an Academy Award winner.
I think this movie didn't have a message, at least I hope it didn't. A message where the writer or director was trying to make a statement and present it to the audience so we all think about it. I hope this more was just a movie, an action drama that we are not supposed to think about or care about, because if it had a message, that message has less remorse than the Saw movie franchise. So let's just pretend this movie doesn't have a message.
If we go with no message then this movie falls into a slightly tense, interesting drama that most people could go without seeing. It is in the vein of a lot of these cop/bad guy movies that come along and disappear without as much as a couple of weeks floating around in the box office, before it gets shot to DVD for people to rent and not really comment on either. I would not say it is a bad movie, I just don't think that anyone really is going to care about it, or recommend it to anyone else, including me. It has some slightly interesting "traps" that happen in the movie that made me take a bit of notice, but nothing that would make me say you have to pay to see this movie.
This movie is about as 3 star as you can get, nothing bad enough to make me tell you to stay away from this movie, nothing good enough for me to tell you to rent or go to the theater to see it. If you have something for Gerard Butler you would not be disappointed in renting this movie, anyone renting this movie will not be disappointed I don't think, but don't go out of your way to check it out this weekend.
