WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Evil Irish arms dealer Miles Jackson (Gillen) is caught by rookie cop Danny Fisher (Cena), who’s promoted to Detective for his troubles CV pattern to.
During the violent stand-off, Jackson’s girlfriend is hit by a passing car and dies.
Years later, Jackson escapes from jail and decides to wreak his revenge on the cop who put him inside – and who, as he sees it, killed his true love angry birds 2 kostenlos downloaden.
So – in true Hollywood action movie bad-guy style – rather than just killing Fisher’s girlfriend Molly (Scott), Jackson kidnaps her and then sets Fisher a series of challenges – you guessed it, twelve – that he has to complete, if he’s ever to see her alive again amazon spiel downloaden.

WHAT’S IT LIKE?

Complete with riddles, games, red-herrings and wild-goose-chases, this is as frenetic as it is pointless.
Anyone as evil and bitter as Jackson would just kill Molly the first chance he gets fortnite download nederlands. OK, perhaps like the talkative movie bad-guy he is, he might have a little fun at their expense first, but the extent to which he goes – apparently without help from anyone else – is stretching believability way past its breaking point download nintendo ds lite games.
In this strange world, the deadly enemies refer to each other by their first names, which seems unexpectedly mature and civil of them.
The camera work and editing are wildly over the top – the shots are so shakey, they’d make the directors of The Shield sea-sick – and the editing is so fast, most of the time, you just can’t se what’s going on, which is a shame, as it’s otherwise nicely framed and lit herunterladen.
Coming from Renny Harlin, as you’d expect, it’s tremendously slick and bursting with energy that will leave you trembling (although not surprised) by the end of a fun ride, but equally, it’s plain silly herunterladen.
With melodramatic acting, crazy fish-out-of-water stunts, corny dialogue (“If we don’t stop that ferry in thirty seconds, Molly’s going to die”), an implausible storyline and mind-muddling visuals, it leaves your mind spinning herunterladen.
