Jackie Chan takes a turn for the dramatic (but don’t worry kids, he still kicks some arse) in this moody thriller from director Martin Campbell. When his teenage daughter dies in an IRA bombing in London, with nothing left to lose he reassumes old skills and starts harassing a former IRA member turned British government official played by Pierce Brosnan. What starts off looking like just another Taken clone ends up having a lot more subtlety and ‘adulting’ going on than you might expect. Listen to Chris, Marco, Michael, and Zach with their review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
