Liam Neeson is the lead in this role. He is unfortunately a typecast for this role. It is very similar to many of his other movies. This one was set to be a great movie, the preview looked amazing. I was interested in this one, cause who doesn’t love the typical Liam Neeson movie? This one was more over the top than his usual. I think there were too many plot holes, and way too many special effects clumped together. If you are looking for an action packed just for the heck of it movie, this is it. But don’t expect to walk out after the movie feeling “Wow, that was amazing! I can’t believe…..” I walked out saying “Ok, Huh, I saw it. Now what?”.
