It's probably not that uncommon but her changing her last name in the middle of her career throws me off a little (I'm like, she looks a lot like Isabela Moner...)

I was about to dismiss this as another action movie, which I'm sure it is, but I admire that they are making the villains a mega corporation as opposed to a bunch of mafioso/gangster types typically used in these stories.

So did that twist near the end ruined it or caught people by surprise?


It was a good time killer and a sucker for anything set in Pittsburgh.

Pitiful reviews though. Not sure it’s passed 20%. But do want to See for Momoa.

I enjoyed this movie and the twist got me. I had no inkling.

Enjoyed the movie, but I guess I've just seen too many movies because I got the twist immediately.

The movie would've been ok with out the big twist. It just felt like it was tacked on in the editing room. Its almost like someone said "what can we do to make this story just a bit different" and the twist was created. They should've told that person to shut the fuck up. lol

It's almost like M Night Shyamalan directed this movie.

Seemed like just an excuse to have
Spoiler:
Momoa in the movie longer than the plot called for. And I guess to have “better”looking action scenes that wouldn’t have involved a 5 foot, 100 pound child.

Not a bad watch and the twist didn't bother me. More revenge flicks against big pharma please.

Holy fuck was this bad. I mean, just terrible plotting, an absurd twist, atrocious dialog, a tween-level attempt to tackle a social ill, some truly bad performances from competent actors and, again, that absurd twist. This felt like it was written by a committee of Donald Kaufmans.

Maybe the scene when Momoa starts crying in the hospital was unintentionally funny and they never showed close ups of his face.
