We are super movie fans and we thought the cast and trailer was worth a watch!! How wrong we were!! Shocking! Weak performances and a weak plot & a pretty low budget! Just avoid!
In this fast-paced, action-packed thriller, beautiful and feisty thief, Alexis Faraday, (Olga Kurylenko, Quantum of Solace, Oblivion) is recruited to pull one last diamond heist before she can leave the game forever. But when the deal goes wrong and Alexis witnesses a brutal murder involving a senator she must run for her life. Pursued by the ruthless and cold Mr. Washington (James Purefoy, A Knight’s Tale, Solomon Kane), Alex starts to uncover a tangle of lies which lead her to face the awful truth about why she was involved in the first place.
believe the 1 star reviews. It's sunday im bored and gave this a go. 99p rental and i feel robbed at that.
Pointless violence. How can you make an unwatchable Olga film - well these guys managed it
Storyline was bad, acting was bad too. Avoid
What a pile of crap, 1 star is too good for this drivel!
The good reviews for this film are more worrying than this terrible excuse for a film.
The previously credible actors must have been desperate to be associated with this garbage.
An Oscar for possibly one of the worst films ever made would guarantee it the only recognition it deserves.
If you watch this and enjoy it, get treatment immediately!!!
There was really nothing to like about this. The plot, the acting, the music were all poor. Not to mention (if this offends you) terrible unwarranted language all the way through, and some really unpleasant scenes. Not at all what we were expecting. The wife was so appalled she stopped watching after 20mins. I lasted the distance, but regretted parting with any money for this.
Best action movie for ages action all the way to the end no tacky computer generated effects like in the 007 movie spectre.
I don't know if this as intended to be a pilot for a TVs series, if so it would explain the awful ending. The characters were thin and unbelievable, the plot strained and then there was that ending, which really was not an end. Poor is an understatement.
bad acting , bad story , bad movie
This is one of those films which some slate and some love (obviously from the reviews) personally I found it watchable but certainly no block buster, it starts of pretty well and ends up 'hum drum' and fairly predictible, one for a rainy day if there's nothing better available, I've seen far worse for sure
Rated at 30% at rottern tomoatoes but most of the press did not rate this movie well.
Saw this on Netflix. Simply awful film. Bad acting, terrible story line. Don't waste your money.
Watched half of film without understanding the plot and still dont. Acting was very wooden indeed and I had no identification with the characters at all.
Really completely awful. Watched it with three mates, and their comments are:
Mate 1: truly horrible.
Mate 2: 96 minutes of my life wasted.
Me: Morgan Morgan Morgan.
Don't believe any other reviews, THIS FILM IS P!SH.
Some poor acting and a fairly weak storyline. If I could give 0 stars I would. Made robocop the remake look good.
My rating of 3 sums it up…..It’s OK. The plot isn’t too bad, acting at times is very average, slightly cringe worthy, and a little predictable. Best part of the movie is seeing Olga in her underwear
The plot is poor and implausible, the directing is careless, the acting is 3rd rate and most of the action scenes are already in the trailer.
I can’t believe this has got good reviews .. Badly written, averagely shot and poorly acted .. Save your money this is a stinker !!! If only there was a money back deal .. Shocker !!
What an atrocious train wreck of a movie. Terrible script, terrible acting, terrible screenplay, terrible action sequences…..the list goes on. The only reason i finished watching it was through morbid curiosity as to whether it would get any better. It didn’t. an absolute waste of time and money.
I can’t say I didn’t like at all it but there are great holes in the script, and some awful acting at times.
Action scenes are ok but overall its pretty disappointing - I almost switched off a number of times...
Didn't enjoy this film at all.
Acting was awful, the plot could have been good, but the sequences were often drawn out & showed how bad the whole affair was.
Gave up watching it in the end, it was just too awful. Wish I could get a refund !!!
Don't believe the positive reviews - they are clearly fake. The script is truly awful, the acting is even worse. The best part of this film is that's it's over.
Its such a weak movie it doesn’t deserve a review but just a warning - don’t waste your time. Don’t be fooled that Morgan Freeman might make it worth watching. He’s not around much and its crap. 1 star is too much
thought it was very good Nc missed the best bits can’t wait for the next instalment
Now I understand. Poor poor acting, lousy movie c grade at best. Put a few well know actors in a movie and you know some people will fall for it..... I did. Switched off at 18:34 min. Bad bad bad.
Poor acting on the whole ,terrible story and dreadful direction. its lucky to get 1 star - how does this rubbish get approved for production… shockingly bad
Boring rubbish. No Plot, Bad dialogue. Avoid.
rented this but every time i try to dowload it I get a message saying error cant download artowrk for momentum and it stops. well thats a waste of 5.99
The film was very badly acted. But I’m really confused why all of the 5* reviews show as 2 out of 2 or 3 out of 3 people find the review helpful;l. What does it take for iTunes to reflect my feedback???
The first half started off good but the last half was very disappointing
Loved it will be getting it for xmas for several friends
I rented this movie on the assumption that Olga would put in a good turn, sadly switched off after 20 min, acting was by the numbers, story line is nothing new and thew action is all rather meh... 5.99 wasted.
Started off ok !
Great escapism, a roller coaster
Was all going good, Tennessee the car park chase scene and accelerated frame rate footage - have not seen this so bad since the cannonball run 2. Casting and acting is good, although it's pretty clear Morgan Freeman was just a quick add in maybe at last minute. Nicely set up for a sequel, but doubt it will be the next Bourne series.
Olga Kurylenko is the only reason I gave this 1 star.
Great cast but ends there, poor acting, poor plot and hilariously speeded up car chase and I'm writing this not even 30 minuets into the movie. If I could get a refund I would.
Really cool. Olga is seriously hot too!
No plot, lots of random action.
Don't waste your money!
This was unfortunately really bad, I paid 5.99 for this so watched it through to the end, it didn't get better.
Not a piece of art, but a good easy stuff to watch on a Friday evening. It resembles "Mission Impossible" but with a female main character. It's worth to rent but not to buy. Actually, looking forward to the next instalment.
Rented this on the basis of all the 5 star reviews. Big mistake, it is really shallow with no tension like a good thriller should have, the thinnest of plots, and 2D characters. Just lots of stupid violence for the sake of it. At the end I felt like I had wasted 2 hours of my life.
How many times do we see this as a script? Trying to leave the bad life/go straight/one last job .... all goes wrong .... go on the run ...etc. etc.
So bored with rinse and repeat scripts.
One of the worst plots I have seen in a long time. The continuity terrible. The acting awful.
If a film currently showing at cinemas is available to rent there is probably a reason for it. This is what I thought until I saw the 5 star rating. Don't be deceived this film is terrible.
Loved the action, couldn't stop watching!
Brilliant movie. So much action! Great to see a brilliant, old fashioned action movie like this. Want more of these. Excellent!
