This isn't great cinema, or even a movie you'll remember four hours later, but as stupid thrill rides go, it's smart enough to show you a good time.
April 13, 2012
An occasionally involving, always brusque chase movie that doubles as a whirlwind tour of Madrid.

An embarrassment for everyone involved but, thankfully, no-one but the most forgiving of viewers will end up seeing it.
May 3, 2015
One of those lousy multinational productions usually cobbled together from some Israeli dry-cleaner's fun-money hoping for a quick buck on the direct-to-video circuit.
June 30, 2013
A poorly-directly and terribly-executed mess of a motion picture that should have been left in the dark.

Sigourney Weaver, who last year suffered the indignity of backing up Taylor Lautner -- Taylor Lautner, for God's sake -- in the daft Abduction, now finds herself essaying the role of the villain in another action flick that's nearly as dopey.

Cavill is no substitute for Van Damme, whose self-critical performance gave the earlier movie much of its heft

Fans of inane and/or unnecessary expositional dialogue will have a field day. Everyone else can Netflix Hudson Hawk and forget to watch it, thus having more fun than anyone who shells out $10.50 for this tedious stinker.

The Cold Light of Day is an appropriately named action drama. It generates very little heat or light.

If you were to look up the word "generic" in the dictionary, you'd see a picture of this film's poster right next to it.

[Weaver is] the only one having any fun - and that includes the audience.
September 10, 2012
A perfunctory chase movie that drops in its tracks long before it reaches what's supposed to pass for a rousing climax.
