Unofficial Description:

I know a lot of people had issues with this movie – I’m one of them. But not so many issues that I couldn’t enjoy it. Did I see the ‘plot twists’ coming from a mile away? Absolutely. Did that ruin the movie for me? No. It’s still a decent flick. I liked the visuals too. Not a bad movie for a Friday night, but I would suggest rental, not purchase.

There are two female leads in the movie – the second, the actress with the dark hair who Jack finds and rescues – I knew here from something else and it was bugging the crap out of me! Turns out, she’s in the Starz series ‘Magic City’. Whew… Now I can sleep again…
