WHAT???

I have resisted this movie for a long tome. This evening, I decided to "give it a go". Now I understand why I avoided it. Is this a "hail Mary Pass" to rebrand an actor, or a failed attempt at creating franchise, or a lost, long distance attempt by the filmmakers to make a "real" movie? I found the opening scene to be sophomoric to say the least, the acting and the premise, just not believable... so I bailed early. Sorry, Cuba... I had to bail. ok, so, how long ago was it that I actually bought Cuba Gooding jr.'s acting? I am not sure... perhaps almost 15 years ago, maybe. Says a lot about me, I guess... but, what I would love to see is a character played by Gooding that is redeemable, believable and closer to where he has real life experience, Maybe he became a BIG STAR too soon in life, and just needs to get busy at reality??? Why would he choose this role???.... That's all I can say, and I apologize if you love this film, I just couldn't believe it... so I left it and saved myself an hour wasted.

WELL, YOU CAN GUESS THE REST........CUBA GOODING JR. CARRIES THE ENTIRE FILM AS THE KILLER WHO CANNOT BE STOPPED. SO WHAT RESULTS.....THAT IS FOR YOU TO SEE. SINCE MAKING THE 🎥 MOVIE, MR.
GOODING HAS LEFT ACTING TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN AND ENTREPRENEUR. SO DO TRY TO CATCH THIS
ENORMOUSLY FAST MOVING FILM 🎞. GET OUT THE 🍿 AND 🍕 & ENJOY THIS FIVE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ PIECE OF ACTION AND THRILLS. IT IS VERY MUCH LIKE THE CLASSIC........DAY OF THE JACKAL, THE ORIGINAL AND THE REMAKE.

A high action suspense movie you'll love!

I love Cuba Gooding Jr. I don't think I've ever seen him in anything where he didn't do a wonderful job. This movie is no reception. What would you do if someone claimed to be a hitman and asked you in a bar one night to make out a list of five people you'd like to see dead? So some guy plays along and makes a list but the hitman is playing for real. Pay attention to when they are in the car together for the first time. I loved the little smile on Cuba's face as he drives like a maniac. He maintained this very cool exterior throughout, but charming, because Gooding can't do it any other way! The pace was fast and it kept my attention throughout. The plot was simple and untangled so I didn't have to do a bunch of detective work figuring it out, which let me just enjoy the action! I highly recommend this movie!

Enjoyable, Just Flawed

Fun. Good action. Cuba Gooding Jr is bone-chilling. His "Jonas" character has three temperaments: cool, cold, and glacial. Story was far-fetched, but I never expect credibility from this type of escapist movie dealing with psychopathic character. Toward the end, it got borderline silly, but by then I'd already enjoyed the movie enough to forgive. Maybe I'm more of a psycho than Gooding's character, cause I was disappointed at the ending for the ostensible Good Guy (who was a girly,whiny, spineless doofus) and his girlfriend (who got better than she deserved).

Not a movie I'd have recommended anyone to shell out $10 to see, but for the Amazon rental price, I'd recommend for anyone who generally enjoys this genre.

It was enough to appease my boredom. Plot could have been better developed. Would have liked to known what led him to go M-I-A and what was the point of the cough... the cough which was NOT consistent. The ending was left as if there would be a part two. Hmmmm.... this is a 2011 movie, and I am just watching in 2017... No part two as yet (at least, not to my knowledge). Overall, I'll admit, I was entertained on this rainy Saturday.

This was actually a thoughtful piece and gave an answer to, "What if I could get rid of five irritating people?" Dangling plot device regarding the reason why Cuba Gooding got sick in the first place (you knew he was sick because he coughed and he just looked bad). Something about "depleted uranium." Bunch of crappy cop shooters, though. It's a wonder that any of them passed their qualifiers.
