BB.5

(out of 5)


Anyone looking to spend an easy two hours with their favourite action hero will have a good time.  is his usual reluctant hero self, forced to protect a young autistic boy when the child accidentally decodes a top secret government weapons code (apparently the CIA puts these things in word search puzzles for fun).  is totally believable as the boy, but he’s in such a lackluster film with a by-the-numbers plot that you won’t give a damn about anything involved in the making of this typical Hollywood thriller. also stars as the ruthless government agent who wants to get rid of the witness despite the moral cost.
