As others have stated this is basically, a European thriller about a man whose identity is erased set in a Jason Bourne style of editing, music and action or at a push in terms of style the Liam Neeson film Taken.
Sadly whilst well filmed, with clear editing, a few nice car stunts, gun shoot outs and fights galore, the film runs well out of steam over it's long running time.
The trouble is it really is quite overlong, for a thin plot, full of really dull talky scenes and just comes across as cold or sterile, lacking any real tension or emotion.
Whilst Aeron Eckhart as the lead man on the run is a very good actor, he's really not picked a great film to show his leading man status, and it's clear why this was a straight to DVD type of film.
Worth a watch, but thrillers such as the Bourne series have little to worry about, as this is a pale imitation.
