This movie does what it says on the box. It's not great art but if you're looking for something entertaining with high production values and big explosions that won't make you think too hard, this fits the bill. The bad guy has an accent, there are death defying leaps, ludicrous escapes, and some pretty good fight choreography. And Neve Campbell is the MVP, imho.

Fell asleep, tried again the next day, still couldn't hold my attention. Not a Die Hard remake, a Die Hard rip off. So sad, as Johnson is much too good to keep getting caught in bad movies.

Dwayne Johnson is incredible as always. The Die-Hard plot is mediocre. The movie is fun, if not satisfying.

I like Dwayne Johnson. Coz he alway lot action and some funny and never swear. This is film is good action. 4 of 5.

Well, my husband and I liked it. I did think it went a tad overboard on putting so much action on the hero...I mean how could he do so much after he was thoroughly thrashed about and slammed into the wall another time? that was so unreal, but then we all seem to go for that--don't we.
I liked all the special effects, especially the scenes at the ending. Oh, and the sound track is interesting as well.

Good movie.

The best part about this movie was the last 15 minutes. It was a low rent Die Hard. Waste of film.

An exciting and entertaining movie with lots of action. Well worth watching !

Updated version of Die Hard. Higher building, less guns, and more scenes hanging off said building. Substitute the dozens of guests/hostages for one family. Swap out the safe (bearer bonds?) for a thumb drive and its owner. Baddies are Swedes, I believe. Germans are sitting this one out. Place in a country that is NOT America, and mix. Unless you absolutely love Dwayne Johnson, just watch Die Hard instead.

Good action movie; even better to see Neve Campbell back. She's always been a great actress. This movie has lots of action but somehow Dwayne Johnson seems to be a more subtle version of his usual persona. Perhaps the director should have allowed Johnson's natural charisma to come through a bit. It just felt quite bottled up so I could not quite feel The Rock this time around.

Anyway, it's quite an entertaining movie with lots of action and good performance from Neve Campbell and adequate from everybody else. Anyway, this is an action movie so what can one really expect. Enjoy.
