Editorial Reviews

Will Shaw (Henry Cavill) arrives in Spain for a weeklong sailing vacation with his family, despite having a strained relationship with his disciplinarian father Martin (Bruce Willis). The situation takes an unexpected and violent turn when his family is kidnapped by intelligence agents. Will's world turns upside down as he gets tangled in an intergovernmental web of lies and secrets, with a briefcase in the center of the mystery. Will finds himself on the run and realizes that he must recover the briefcase and take down secret agents in order to get his family back alive.

OK, having seen this movie I know first hand that this movie is not as bad as it is made out to be by ALL the reviewers here on Amazon. I won't go over the plot and the actors, as they have been dug deeply into in the previous reviews. Instead, I shall tell you it like it truly is.

The movie, 'Cold Light Of Day' is a good, decent action movie. You get pulled in and it never lets you go. Why? Well, you just don't know who to trust and what is around any given corner. Sure Henry C. is made out to be a "super spy" instead of the stockbroker he seemingly is, but that's OK, as it truly doesn't deter you from watching the movie. My guess is this movie was made a couple of years ago before his upcoming blockbuster 'Superman - Man Of Steel' comes to our screens. Sometimes these kind of direct-to-DVD movies sit on shelves for ages until one of the leads becomes famous. (Take, for instance, 'Cabin In The Woods' with Chris Hemsworth, filmed in 2009 and released this year due to 'Thor'!)

Anyway, I digress. But I do agree that Bruce W. is wasted in the role of the father living on a boat with his wife, Caroline G. They have moved around, as a family for years, but now have all the kids around the table (on said boat) for the first time in a while. Rafi G. as Henry C's younger brother is wasted film fodder, much the same as his GF, the lovely Emma H. More than a hint of 'Bourne' runs thru Henry C. but unlike that other action character, this one "feels" real in his mistakes, wrong turns, pain.

Verónica E. as Henry C.'s "love interest turned sister" is both beautiful and full of action angst herself. Mind you, when being chased by Sigourney W.

Format: DVD
A well traveled family has a reunion in Spain. The son, Will (Henry Cavill) is spending a lot of time on his cell phone as he just got a call his company is bankrupt. In spite of the sad violin music, they didn't bother to develop his character at this early point for me to care. Later, his brother Josh (Rafi Gavron), Dara (Emma Hamilton) and mom (Caroline Goodall) are kidnapped and ransomed. We discover Dad, Martin Shaw (Bruce Willis) is in the CIA. He and son Will must find a way to save their family in 24 hours. The kidnappers are demanding the return of a briefcase that Willis doesn't have, one that his case worker Jean Carrack (Sigourney Weaver) has already turned in.

Yes, that would have been a great movie, except Willis doesn't get paid past the first 20 minutes and Cavill has to outrun horses and defeat the bad guys alone. So let's see, he doesn't trust the CIA. The police are after him for a murder he didn't commit. Armed with his dad's cell phone and enlisting the help of some movie eye candy (Verónica Echegui), Will sets out to save his family. Pretty standard stuff and then we get to the expected twist. At this juncture, the movie almost caught my interest, except that Henry Cavill never becomes convincing in this role. Instead of Henry being a stock broker, they should have made him a karate instructor, or an Olympic marksman giving him a skill he could use...No wait! He did use the cell phone.

F-bombs. No sex or nudity. 2 1/2 stars

Format: DVD
Henry Cavill (Theseus of Tarsem Singh-directed epic "Immortals") plays a young American businessman Will, who has just arrived in Spain to meet his family. While out on a yacht with his father Martin (Bruce Willis), mother Laurie (Caroline Goodall), young brother Josh (Rafi Gavron) and Josh's fiancée Dara (Emma Hamilton), Will makes a mistake and one of them gets injured. To buy a medicine, Will goes on shore alone, but when Will comes back, he finds everyone on the boat has disappeared.

"The Cold Light of Day" starts promisingly, and then it slowly loses momentum through a whole heap of cliché. Without revealing too much about the story, the US-Spanish thriller is about an American on foreign soil, who gets involved in a web of intrigue.

The film's basic idea (a bit sounds like "Frantic") is not bad. The problem is its poor execution. In short, the film has no style. Characters, storytelling, acting and action set-pieces - everything in the film is just OK, and nothing more. Some action stunts are impressive, and so are the film's on-location shots (in Madrid), but they are wasted among the banal narrative that no one is really interested.

French director Mabrouk El Mechri (known for his unique mocumentary/meta-film "JCVD" starring Jean-Claude Van Damme as himself) directs "The Cold Light of Day," written by Scott Wiper (director of "The Condemned") and John Petro. In addition to the players mentioned above, the cast of "The Cold Light of Day" includes Verónica Echegui, Colm Meaney (in a cameo role), Roschdy Zem and Sigourney Weaver with a gun. The film's photography is by Remi Adefarasin ("Elizabeth").

With names and talent attached to it, "The Cold Light of Day" could have been a more thrilling suspense. As it is, it only feels like watching a drawn-out episode for a TV show.

I didn't know what to expect and the move started out slow but quickly picked up and kept me thinking who was the villain.
