Mondays at the Movies


So how far will you go to save your child?


To the ends of the earth — or in this case….until you catch up with the psychopaths who took your child who was playing innocently in the park on  a sunny afternoon.

Halle Berry is the mom.  She pulls off this adrenaline-rush action thriller…..

Although….it IS a fairly predictable plot.  It does keep you on the edge of your seat.  Kind of like “Taken”, without the CIA-savvy lead actor of course.

But I never thought for a minute these criminals were a match for this angry mom.

So yeah…it was predictable.  But Halle, beaten, bruised..crushed…and yet still stunning…. behind the wheel of a seemingly invincible minivan, was just fun to watch

So….while it’s being wildly panned by the professional critics….I liked it.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars…with no expectations of Oscar glory…

I’m Gary Rivers and that’s what’s happening at the movies..
