I'll buy any Bruce Willis action movie, and this is one of those. Not as much a shoot-em-up as Die Hard, but you get the idea. Bruce Willis as the good guy, protecting the innocent, in this case an autistic kid. Willis is his usual don't-do-it-by-the-book character. The kid is, by the way, played by a very fine young actor who does an excellent job with that difficult role. Alec Baldwin does a great job as the bad guy. So for action movies, this is a good one. Not a total roller-coaster ride, but it moves right along and has a good plot and good acting. I admit that it's over the top as far as believeability, but it's a MOVIE! It's by Hollywood! If you're looking to escape into something like that, then go with this one.
