My Thoughts: "I wasn't looking forward to seeing this film, I had been warned how awful it was, but yet here I am giving my thoughts on it and I have a 13yr old to thank for it. Now to the movie... I tried to look past how ridiculous Taylor Lautner's acting is but I couldn't. It was like instead of acting, he was trying to make sure he was coming off really cool. His acting leaves something to be desired. I did think Lily Collins was good in the movie. So was the small parts of Maria Bello and Jason Issacs. The movie is filled with talented actor's and actresses who unfortunately aren't used nearly enough. Lautner comes off too stiff and needs to relax and become the character and not try to put himself into it so much. Oh and am I the only one who thought the kissing scene on the train was gross and awkward? I felt sorry for the girl. It sounded like her face was being sucked off. I actually liked Taylor in the 'Twilight' films. I don't know what went wrong in this one for him. But his acting wasn't the only bad thing. I could also blame the weak story. Maybe he'll do better in future film with a better script."

A fairly entertaining and thrilling action movie. A surprisingly smart, stylish and suspensful stunt-packed thriller that keeps your heart-pouunding every step of the way. Its full of fire-power, fist, kicks and fantastic stunt work.
