This was supposed to be an action, crime, thriller. I seem to pick boring movies. Well, the action was mostly at the end, there was a crime, and it didn't thrill me very much.
It starts out as one of those gritty dramas. Or at least tries to. The colours are muted, mostly greys, and we quickly establish that the "good people" are a couple down on their luck. They have money troubles, fertility problems, so you can really feel that these people are just in a hole.
Now this is where the predictability starts to happen. Generally bad things don't seem to happen to the good people who are well-off and happy. From then on, it feels like a generic thriller. It has the drugs, the single mum, the ageing cop with a personal beef against the evil guys.
It was almost like watching one of those genre comedies, like it should be titled "Thriller Movie". It's not the cast, really. Kate Hudson was a good female lead. I don't remember seeing her in any action before, but there was a line; "Guns are for pussies" that she looked really bad-ass saying.
She had a good mix of regular woman caught in a bad situation, but kicking butt. James Franco blended in well with the look of the movie.
He had the dirty, grey visage that was perfect. I felt he was a bit overshadowed by Kate, but he was a good, supporting husband. Tom Wilkinson was a fine British cop. He was so generic though, it could have been anyone of the many actors who generally play British cops on TV.
Overall, a lacklustre movie, and there really isn't all that much to say about it. You can watch it, if you have low expectations. Or if you really have some time to kill.
Or you're doing something, and want some background noise and gunfire doesn't bother you. Otherwise, give this one a miss. Was this review helpful to you?Adjective.

For much of history religion served this . This is a good play filled with, what I hope, are real people. There is the fear in me that this can come across (or is written as) a bunch of stereotypes, but I think that there is a lot of truth in these characters and that if given the right director and cast, that it would play /5.
