A good movie

Reviewer: MalikMelikeDate: 2014-11-11

I was happy with what I watched but it was not what I expected. All was very easy for him to overcome and therefore not realistic.

Slow Start

Reviewer: Mum007Date: 2014-10-29

After a very slow start this film did pick up, the first half an hour could have been covered in about 10min in my opinion.


Reviewer: Brown Bear and KoalaDate: 2014-10-28

Absolute stunning! My fiancee and I enjoyed seeing Denzel and the Bad Guy (Yogi from Triple X) whom also made it massively that extra more special and a definite must have on Blu-ray
