Scott’s Take – Not Reviewed
A potentially interesting political thriller that continues the hot “Year of Ryan Gosling.” Oh and this one stars George Clooney, whose had a pretty great year himself. I plan to see this on Tuesday. The Ides of March got lost in the shuffle for me this year.
I really wanted to get to see this one when it was in theaters, but it just did not work out for me. I plan on seeing this one at some point this week and will get back to you all with my opinion.
For as long as he can remember, Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) has had the uneasy feeling that he’s living someone else’s life. When he stumbles upon an image of himself as a little boy on a missing persons website, all of Nathan’s darkest fears come true: he realizes his parents are not his own and his life is a lie, carefully fabricated to hide something more mysterious and dangerous than he could have ever imagined. Just as he begins to piece together his true identity, Nathan is targeted by a team of trained killers, forcing him on the run with the only person he can trust, his neighbor, Karen (Lily Collins). Every second counts as Nathan and Karen race to evade an army of assassins and federal operatives. But as his opponents close in, Nathan realizes that the only way he’ll survive and solve the mystery of his elusive biological father is to stop running and take matters into his own hands. — (C) Lionsgate
Pure. Hot. Garbage.
See Scott’s take.
That’s all for this week. Next week we have a full slate of releases with Real Steel, 50/50, and Paranormal Activity 3. Have a great week!
