First the positive The movie opens like a real thriller, with some good action shots with a pace and score that that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The cast all do a good job with their roles, the dialog and story line are credible for the most part. The score moves along well with the scenes.
On the down side the overall look and feel of this movie puts it squarely in the made for TV drama category. There are no real surprises. The action is quickly toned down to family prime viewing level and the drama level increases proportionately.
This, IMO, is not a bad movie but it doesn't offer the kind of entertainment value you would expect from a big screen film. It will do well on TV on both sides of the pond.
