Waste of Great Actors - Spoiler Alert
If you don't want the movie ruined for you, please don't read this review. I am going to talk about things that I am pretty sure will mess up your viewing pleasure. Otherwise, if you don't care, read on. There were some great actors in this movie, but they really were not given much to work with. Additionally, Bruce Willis was killed off pretty much as soon as the real action started and his son, Will (played by Henry Cavill), really wasn't much of a replacement. As Cavill's vehicle towards an action hero career, this wasn't the best introduction. Besides the plot being simply unbelievable and contrived, the fight scenes and car chases were just not exciting. Predictably, when the evil Sigourney Weaver was about to take Cavill out in the final scene, the good guys showed up just in time to take her out. Despite the fact that we had just seen the main guy shot in the back by Sigourney. It would have been a bit more interesting if they had at least killed off the brother's girlfriend.
