If I was to tell you that this movie took in a whopping £46 in its opening weekend in the UK, you would start to get a feel for the quality of this movie. We have ex-Bond girl,
Olga Kurylenko playing the mouse to
James Purefoy cat, in a heist goes wrong sort of movie.
Set in South Africa, we have all the usual setups, corny and cliche as you could possibly make them. Though in its defense there is no nudity here, which given they hit every other one, that is a small surprise.
What is even more horrendous and to be quite frank unforgivable is
Morgan Freeman making an appearance as a politician who is implicated in this disaster (on so many fronts). Clearly though he was picking up a pay cheque here, because all of his scenes are at the end of a phone. So hopefully that new kitchen he was decking out was worth it.
Purefoy has probably the worse ever haircut in any of his movies ever. Surely he can’t look back on this and think, that’s one for the grandchildren? It is a mess from start to finish.
I really don’t want to go on just how bad this movie is. I have already wasted way more of my life on this one as it stands. It gets my infamous 0 out of 10 rating.
