Without giving too much away about the story line and plot, I will say it appears after many years of the "Super Hero" Bruce Willis we know, it seems he is portraying more and more "Bad guy" roles. This is not to say I don't like Bruce in the Bad guy role. It just seems he's done a 180° on his previous typecast Good guy persona's. That said, this film had the potential to be very good. It lost that opportunity (for me), about 30 mins in. This is a story of a man taking his wife and son to the country to bond with his son and teach him some lessons in being a man. The way he goes about it is ridiculous, but I will leave that to others to decide. The plot unfolds in a somewhat unique way then follows the typical Hollywood theme of an innocent stumbling on a corrupt situation and inadvertently getting involved and in way over his head. The tea of the movie plays out like a predictable and so so novel. I have the film a 6/10 for a few good scenes and acting was above par. The film is palatable but nothing to write home about. If your in the mood for a light thriller and are a Bruce Wilis fan, then it's worth a watch. Otherwise, don't go into it with high expectations.
Absolutely one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Can't believe Bruce Willis is in it, and even his acting is horrible. The Dad character is just a punk kid trying to say all of the right things to his son who's acting ability is just as bad as everyone else.s. The Mom character couldn't get an audition in a middle school play. To top it all off is the never ceasing awful music that is constantly playing in the background. Could not watch the whole thing. I just walked out.
As someone who enjoys watching movies (and relies on IMDb fraternity) I am writing this as my 'paying my dues' to my fellow sufferers. I watched this movie, not motivated by anything except the premise looked OK. I was not in the least bit influenced either way by seeing Bruce Willis in the cast (he had his best part in Pulp Fiction and everything has been downhill since) and did not even recognize who the lead actor was (Hayden who?). Boy, was I in for some serious disappointment. The story is not original, but OK. There are tons of corrupt cops in this world although to be fair it is not immediately apparent that the entire PD (or Sheriff's Dept or whatever) was in cahoot with some bad guy doing bad stuff. The acting is uniformly bad, so bad that you actually root for the evident bad guy who is taking hostage and stuff. His portrayal of the semi-bad guy is semi convincing, the rest just awful, amateurish. And that is insulting amateurs everywhere. The kid does a decent job and there is a decent message on bullying. What the woman (mother of the child) was doing in the movie will remain a mystery (my theory is she is the Director's fiancé or the producer's mistress). Back to the movie- the cinematography is bland, uninspiring. The chase on the quad- bikes through the forest as convincing as the Obama's 'you can keep your doctor'. The plot is made more threadbare by the repeated back and forth trying to protect the plot. And it does not succeed at any level. The leading man is slightly less charismatic than a wet cardboard show-box or three-day old stale pizza slice with anchovies on it. If he qualifies as an actor (and gets paid for it), we all have hopes. Bruce Willis is abysmal at best. He needs to either pack it in or try acting. I assume that is what he was paid to do (unless it was his 'Star' name that would 'bring bums on seats'). The music score- someone else said- it is absent at key moments, and atrocious when present. I could not say it better. Having wasted about 90 minutes watching it- why am I wasting another 15 writing about this? Because, I care. About my movie going brethren. It was a choice, a bad choice, like many others I have made in life. No one forced me to. I did not have full information and my choice, although turned out to be unwise, was not coerced. You, my friends, now have no excuse. Final word: Sucks!
Apologies, but 32 minutes was about all I could manage and even then, that was almost 30 minutes too much. Hayden was wooden from the off and every additional character only added to this wood-fest. The dialogue is truly awful and the non-connection between the family makes it impossible to believe they have ever spent more than a couple of minutes together. Willis must've done this for the money only. His Donald Trump way of speaking, that is making your mouth like a tiny butthole, just looks silly and was neither brooding or menacing. The music is very intrusive and does nothing to help out the obvious plot. Boy, does the whole thing drag! This is a movie worth crossing the road away from the Cinema for. Mind you, if you want unreal dialogue and acting this is for you.
The film crafts a brilliant atmosphere and tension, Hayden is usually stamped all over by critics for his acting but here it feels genuine and real. He has a believable relationship with his child and while not he greatest film in the world it provides some brilliant entertainment and deserved better than it was given.
