Survive the viewing

This is an extremely violent movie with repetitive scenes that are quite predictable. The lines are weak, the acting is weak, with the exception of the grandmother and granddaughter. The rest of the cast is unconvincing, including Bruce Willis, Chad Michael Murray, and his wife, Lydia Hull. If you have insomnia, watch this. It will definitely put you to sleep.

Wont get that time back

Honestly, the plot or lack there of is enough to make this unwatchable. I thought Bruce Willis being in the movie would make it something to watch, but, don't waste your time. Predictable scenario, I could of acted better.

This title has:

Too much swearing
