Actioners don’t get any less original
October 14, 2015
In an at tempt to show that Keanu Reeves (see John Wick) is not the only bad actor to fall back on cartoonish action fare, Milla Jovovich plays an American antiterrorism expert in London who sniffs out a ticking-clock plot to blow up Times Square on New Year’s Eve.
But before she can act on it, she is framed (by glowering villain Pierce Brosnan, actually codenamed “The Watchmaker”) for a restaurant bombing that took out her entire team, and she’s on the run from the cops, the CIA, the terrorists, etc. Actioners don’t get any less original. Unintentionally hilarious script. (96 min)
