Goofs

During the robbery scene near the end of the movie the truck driven by Stephen Amell hits a road sign. Apparently this was unknown by Stephen as an actual accident. The sign had to be repaired and he did not find out till the premiere in Vancouver that it wasn't planned and was completely surprised. See more »

Okay for what it is
14 December 2019 | by deadmanaronSee all my reviews

I will start out by saying that the movie is not great, but I can also say that it doesn't deserve as much flack as it's getting. A thing some have been talking about was that it doesn't add anything new and while it is true, I also don't think it needs to. The movie is enjoyable to watch and it definitely had potential. My complaint with this movie is with the characters. The characters have little to no development or depth. Again I want to restate that it's not a bad movie, at points, you can feel as if the characters could be real people and connect with them. However these moments are cliche and very few. At it's worst, the movie will throw ideas in the air and never come back to them. Special effects are very well done and don't let down. The plot was generic but still enjoyable. Overall, this movie is good for casual audiences and people that just wanna sit down and turn off their brain for an hour after a long day. If you want something with a lot more to offer than this then I wouldn't recommend watching this movie.
