4.0 out of 5 stars
Tense thriller with good action
Verified purchase
Starts off with a tragedy, turns into a pairing between a psychologically messed-up officer and a rookie, trying to rescue stragglers in a hurricane. In doing so they cross paths with a gang of sociopathic criminals. This turns into a deadly cat-and-mouse hide and seek in a run-down apartment block. Not every encounter works but most of them are very tense indeed. Throw in a loose-cannon Mel Gibson and his doctor daughter (Kate Bosworth) and a strange elderly recluse and you have a crime movie that's well above average.

There are enough original plot lines and surprises to make this very watchable. Enjoyed this one.

Pretty good, really good cast, excellent acting, the story works
Verified purchase
I'm obviously expecting something completely different to the 1 star reviewers. But I didn't go in to it with any expectations. It's a story you could believe and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. The initial scene in the car wasn't the best tbh. But as an overview - it's an art robbery during a storm. I like the tongue in cheek humour and I'd happily watch it again. It's easy going, there isn't a hidden message like many films have these days. Just a straight forward good guy versus bad guy. In my opinion worth a watch.

A cookie cutter B movie, fueled by stupid.
Verified purchase
Bellow average crime caper in a storm, that only stands out in its directorial and editorial choices, like the big showdown in the end missing the resolution because the director I think wanted to score under a 15 rating, so it cuts abruptly to muzzle flashes through a window and cuts to everyone is fine at the hospital, including a police officer shot through the leg who is back on duty... Yes that's stupid.
But this film goes to town on stupid, stupidity is the engine that fuels the plot. Well stupidity and cliche... Okay, example of cliche and stupidity:
*spoilers*

The cookie cutter 'disgrunteled cop-hating' Black civilian, who ignores an officers request to a stop and search, is assaulted by police (I know technically this is resisting arrest), somehow gets a large settlement moves to Puerto Rico 'rescues' and trains a big cat to attack police officers which he hides loose in a room with no lights on in his appartment...
Yeah. It gets worse.
This lunatic is portrayed as one of the 'good guys' who gets left a $200 million painting looted by Nazis in WW2 by the police officers at the end, god knows why, he spends most of the movie bleeding out on the floor because the big cat attacked him.

Predictable but still good
Verified purchase
Read the reviews and wasn't expecting much. Yes, it is predictable at times but it was good, not hard going and only an hour and a half long so the story is not dragged out. Give it a go.

Very, very, silly
Verified purchase
The film has so many cliches there isn't enough space to list them here. The storm is irrelevant to the plot; it's all in an apartment block, where it rains a lot. The worst consequence of this storm that's forced mass evacuation is that the power's cut off and the basement floods. The story is pretty much ridiculous. Gibson has some fun with his role (but what's he doing in this film at all?), the rest of the actors are 'adequate'. I found its only redeeming feature was it being so ridiculously silly that sometimes it made me laugh. If it was re-written as a comedy thriller it might work quite well, but as it stands it's simply rubbishy.
Suppose I should have mentioned the Big Cat in a barricaded cupboard ...

Predictable, poor plot, not great acting, vaguely entertaining.
Verified purchase
Take a simple concept such as a bunch of loosely-affiliated strangers, shove them in a crisis situation (a storm), keep them in a limited environment (an apartment block), and chuck in some despicable criminal bad guys. And add a tiger/leopard/big cat. Yeah, you read that right! Mediocre acting at best; you can see even Gibson is just along for the paycheque, with his caricaturised portrayal of a badass ex-cop on death's door. The plot is about as watertight as the old man's basement (spoiler: it floods pretty quickly). The direction and cinematography aren't horrendous, but they're by no means great. The concept is far from new, and provides a half decent platform to build a story on, but this film does not deliver. I got diabetes from the sickly sweet ending.

Not too bad of an action romp
Verified purchase
Gibson is his usual cantankerous self. Reasonably good plot. Well shot. If you like an action yarn, it's better than most.
