This isn't a kids movie - so don't expect to start with a bang and have tension built with loud noises and music. It's very nice to see Mel Gibson playing a cop - an old fart in a new movie - an old familiar face looking a little out of place in modern society and casting him in the role adds the flavour (we actually KNOW what kind of cop he is, right? Good guy but a little loose on the rules and not too politically correct).
The tension builds as you follow the story and see things unfold. You feel sickness - understanding what characters are thinking and hoping things don't turn out as badly as they expect. There are a few surprises here, and none disappoint.
The story is excellent, you constantly revise your sympathies and opinions until the very last minute of the film.
