Trivia

In one of the early scenes when they take the spare tyre out of the trunk it has a hub cap fitted to the wheel. Normally a spare would not have a hub cap fitted; the hub cap on the wheel with the flat tyre would end up on the spare after it has been fitted. See more »

Decent effort
31 December 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This is not a Jean Claude van Damme vehicle (putting this out, because I can imagine that some countries might try to sell it that way). He's taking back seat with a more chilled out character and lets others go crazy. Lennie James whom I really noticed in "Hung" (nice small role in that TV show) is taking center stage.

The story is pretty bog standard, but it works for a small budget movie. It tries keeping the story flowing and doesn't take any prisoners (a bit of a western analogy can be made). The flashbacks are there to help us and move the story forward. Some character relationships are a bit too complicated and might not work entirely. Still nice effort and the tension it builds is decent enough
