Ladies Beware: 90% of this movie is LOUD violence, car chasing & crashing, shooting, etc. You don't get to enjoy Bruce Willis & if you go see this movie, you will soon find out why.

Action packed

This movie was awesome! I'm a Bruce Willis fan and of course I had to go see it since he was in it although briefly. There were some unexpected twists and turns but isn't that what makes a movie good! I recommend going to go see this movie. Not familiar with the other characters. If you are looking for a good action movie, this is a must see!

Good time waster

Solid B movie about hapless American man who finds out that his dad was actually a CIA agent and that his family has been kidnapped and people are trying to kill him. This is fast paced and has well-directed action scenes. Worth seeing if you aren't expecting something with a huge budget along the lines of a Die Hard or Michael Bay film.

weak movie - but I didn't feel the need to walk out

A few things were right with this movie...primarily the scenery and on-location filming. The weakness is that they never developed a strong protagonist or antagonist. It's sort of unclear who the "bad guys" really are and they don't really make you cheer for the "good guys" because they never get you to really love them like a good capture/revenge movie. I would actually not recommend this for the casual movie goer who wants to see a good movie.

A Disappointment

Cold Light of Day appeared promising with actors like Bruce Willis, Sigourney Weaver, and Henry Cavill, but turned out to be less than amazing. I enjoy thrillers and this movie seemed to have the essence of Taken, a movie I love. However, it was a mediocre film with mediocre acting. The script was predictable and uninspired. The entire time I was hoping for a surprising plot twist or a remarkable discovery, but neither of those things happened. The couple "twists" that occurred in the movie were so minor and predictable, that the story line felt like nothing more than one long action sequence. It was entertaining enough that I wouldn't label it a "bad" movie, but I would definitely recommend that you rent it rather than see it in theaters.
