Ruined by some stupid chasing scenes and bad directing
Aaron Eckhart is one of the best and most talented actors. No matter what kind of role he played, he just looked the part, the real deal. He played an uniformed cop in this movie and just looked like a cop.
What I have to point out is the bad chasing scenes when he and the kidnapper No.1 like Marathon runners...eh, well, more like supermen. They kept running so long but didn't seem to be tired or even got short breath. Usually, no matter how your cardio condition might be, running so long and still got the strength to fight was just impossible. The chasing scene was just over-the-top ridiculous. I don't know where the kidnapper hid his gun, but during the running, he got no problem to have knife and gun suddenly pulled out like magician is another ridiculous and highly unlikely stupid arrangement. When he ran, we didn't see any place on his body show that he's carrying a knife or a gun, yet he could pull a knife or gun from nowhere.
The thing I hated most when watching a movie was when the director treated us like blind moron. There's no way both guys could run so long and still got the energy and strength to fight, after running so long and so hard, both should be collapsed right away if they stopped. Courtney Eaton played the annoying naive, shallow and self-righteous Ava Brooks role is another reason that made me feel so disgusted. A role that's just felt so ridiculous.
