5.0 out of 5 stars much better than taken 2
Now firstly this film has nothing new to add to the Bourne, Taken films.

But saying that the way this film plays out is fantastic and a it is a very good action/thriller film.

Aaron Eckhart is fantastic as the main star in this movie, working in an office for the government, goes to get some papers that he has left behind, with his teenage daughter,...

Decent action movie has a feel of the Taken movies to it, good story line keeps your interest up to the cop out ending worth a go if not too expensive

2.0 out of 5 stars Painfully generic, 7 Jun 2014
This review is from: The Expatriate (Blu-ray)
A good cast wasted on something that's been done better many times before. If you want a predictable cookie cutter action thriller its fine.

Good storyline with unexpected twists. Somewhat James Bond-ish but the acting wad believable. I'm glad they stopped making women in the movies look like helpless twits and this one accomplished that with the daughter. It portrayed her as a teenager but an intelligent one which was great. Enjoyable movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible film, don't bother., 13 April 2014

Thought this would be worth a punt for a couple of quid... how bad could it be?

Very bad.

Boring, predictable, poor script, bad acting, characters you don't care about. Not even worth the price of the disc it's burnt on.

The file is a little slow, but when it gets going it is a reasonable watch, lots of action and a reasonable plot. It is a well known plot, but my wife and I both enjoyed watching it.,...

Absolutly no subtitles... That's a pity. None of the DVD or BR formats are proposing english subtitles... This is not serious.

this is a fast paced and clever action movie the script is well written and makes a very entertaining movie Eckhart plays a good role as the ex-cia hit man trying to make sense of a difficult situation he performs at his best when his daughter is kidnapped by a ruthless corporation intent on covering up a tragedy the way Eckhart goes about the rescue is superb and the acting by all the cast is good this film is worthy of several screenings

3.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray review, 17 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Expatriate [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The Movie: As other reviewers have indicated, this is a Bourne-lite spy on the run action thriller set in Europe. It is totally formulaic and there is too much exposition in the dialogue (i.e. show, don't tell). I found the location subtitles that said "Brussels, Belgium" particularly amusing. However it's competently executed, the pacing is reasonable and it's well made.

The Disc: The UK disc from Koch Media is well worth the upgrade to Blu-ray. The picture is detailed with a fine layer of grain. There is a noticeable step down in quality on the cast and director interviews, which are in DVD quality and run for 14 mins. There are no other extras and no subtitles provided for the movie.
