I had not heard about this movie until just recently when I was asked to review it. I love Thrillers and it did sound interesting so I decided to give it a try.
This movie was action-packed but the story was just ok. It had some issues and wasn't really believable . It was a OK movie but I don't think it is one I would watch again.
I give this 3 1/2 out of 5
