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.

You'll get more enjoyment from a council tax bill
Verified purchase
It has a bit of drama, plenty of wind and rain, a monster locked in a cupboard and Mel Gibson, who, ironically, is also suspected of having monsters in the cupboard. None of these facts will make you glad you watched it. Had I not had a bowl of peanuts (dry roasted) to finish, I may not have been fortunate enough to witness the conclusion, which was as uninspiring as the premise. I'd explain further, but I wouldn't want to let the cat out of the bag.

Deary, deary me Amazon. Whoever comissioned this should have their complimentary Prime cancelled.

10x better than The Eternals
Verified purchase
Some cool one liners, gun play sets, and a arc of humour that typical Mel Gibson of Lethal Weapon era. Not a world shattering block buster, but still 10x better than half the junk some studios are knocking out ( Disney for example ) . A cool popcorn and soda entertainment film.

Below bad.
Verified purchase
Stuffed full of terrible cliches in a non-sensical plot. The 'big bad' go from literally being the sort of guys that mug old ladies on the street to breaking into secure fortresses with military grade equipment at their disposal.

Characters continually make decisions that defy any sort of logic or rationale that would have any bearing in the real world. "Get the bowl of food" seems to be a thoroughly confusing line to the three other characters in the room at the time as they all ask for the sentence to be repeated multiple times and stare blankly, until an unknown pet (tiger? lion?) drags a fourth character into a room. Once he's succesfully retrieved the doctor in the party sees the minor scratches on the dudes leg and states "it's bad" but that's ok - because despite the fact there is a hurricane force storm setting in about around them, and a gang of armed maniacs roaming the corridors, they decide that its worth going to visit the other doctor that randomly lives in the building to get some gauze, penicillin and sutures...

Mental decisions like this are made every few minutes presumably in an attempt to add drama/conflict/suspense, all it really did for me was make me cringe.

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 ...

Force of template bigotry
Verified purchase
Are you In the mood for easy watching action adventure? Want some interesting plot and character progression? Don't be fooled by the trailer. You won't get that here.

This film epitomises the worst attitudes of a 1970's B movie. Only the strongly misogynistic would empathise with the male characters and any modern woman should despair of the female characters who put up with it. It started predictably, and one thought, this is a clever build up of tension that needs to be resolved. But no. It is the real narrative. There is no flip of perspective. It really is a film for bigots.

To compliment the vacuous plot, the actors are also suitably lame, wooden, unconvincing, disengaging, dull and predictable.True, some of them may have passing resemblances to certain famous stars but this in no way compensates for their complete lack of talent.

There is no progression of plot or change of scene, no surprises. It's really bad. And predictably so. Sadly just like so much of the main stream output for the low end audience.

Unbelievably Stupid with Cringe Factor 10
Verified purchase
It starts off promising, but then it becomes about an innocent black guy (l'm not being racist, but this trop got old very fast, like since the 1960s), and he keeps a tiger in his flat, from compo money he got, from being unfairly arrested? And everyone in that block of Puerto Rican flats is an art collector or a gun collecting ex-cop? And the bad guys are art collectors too?

Nobody is normal in this film and l like to think the storm eventually sucked everyone up into the clouds in the end. I'll never know because l stopped watching 3/4 through, but this is how l'm going to tell myself it ended. Sad waste of Mel Gibson's talents by the way.

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.
