The terrorists were composed of: A guy whose wife was stuck in London and couldn't get to the U.S. so she died because what? national health services in London wouldn't cut it? Also a day trader looking to short the markets. Also the head honcho has principles which he articulates as "This isn't about terror or a political statement, this is about money." So of course he just ups his fee. We are left to wonder why he supports terror as a blanket motive? Is he satan? Does he support a specific "political statement" that would have made his participation okay, or just in general he supports political statements made through violence? That shows some really juvenile writing!!! As do the timestamps for the scenes that show a basic lack of understanding time zones!
Then the U.S. ambassador, that has more clout than any actual ambassador, rather than flagging the specific terrorist fingered by Jovovich (which would take no effort) instead chooses to focus on her protege? So she doesn't even support her own judgement. Again another silly writing flaw. Also once they knew Milla was being tracked they destroyed the tracker but didn't bother to think its last location was right where they were camped out and that might be a problem? Also the many missed opportunities to relay the simple message of who was going where, to do what which they had figured out pretty quickly (or should have). As if only one person could be trusted knowing the plot. I guess that's why Milla had to do it herself?
Milla did awesome as did Dylan. Pierce Brosnan played what he has seen in other movies and was overly melodramatic as did/was the Ambassador.
So watch it to enjoy a silly story well shot and acted but not for high brow fare...
This movie was "meh". It had a few A-list actors and good production values for the most part. But something I can't quite pin was just missing that made it feel rather mediocre and kinda just not that good. The plot while seemingly valid just had elements that made you question the integrity of the whole movie (like one of the protaganist being doubted be their own team etc). That was hard to swallow and just made the movie harder to appreciate. I'm not one to usually care about "believability" THAT much in movies, as movies are fiction and my purpose is a little brief escape ride from reality. But there were elements to it that just made the whole movie seem silly and ridiculous in a sense.
I wasn't not entertained. But I was just frustrated as I watched. Again, some good actors, good production values, but something wasn't quite right that made this movie seem like it just tried hard but didn't really deliver.

But as justification we're informed after the move that homeland security has prevented 53 attacks after 9/11 - that raised the rating by one star...
The second star and that's no joke is for the trust of the boss in his employee. I like that, in a time where when there is a problem the first reaction of management is to find a scapegoat.
