Thoughts: Before Henry Cavill is turned over to Warner Brothers as its newest Man of Steel, he is getting in a few action flicks to pad that bank account should Superman not be the blockbuster it is hoping to be. What we have here is a plot that has been recycled from countless man-in-peril-with-family-in-similar-jeopardy angles and two aging (but still effective) stars in supporting roles. Bruce Willis has never met a cop role he couldn’t take on and I’m liking Sigourney Weaver’s reclaimed love of villainous women roles. Weaver being bad is more than enough to entice me into the theater for this one…and here’s hoping it provides solid escapist entertainment that goes down easy.
