I thought there would be more humor


Not a bad movie but not a great one either, the performances were fine but the story just didn't really grip me and the direction seemed pretty generic. I feel like this story could be told again with more humor and be an absolute riot...

I was a bit bored by it too. The subject matter is indeed interesting but as a film it just felt like something I've seen before, like A Beautiful Mind without the bits where he goes mad. It just wasn't a cinematic story. It felt like a TV movie with a more prestigious cast and less corny but still somewhat pedestrian scripting and direction. And Liam Neeson, I just felt like I was watching Liam Neeson again, and not just because he can't do a very good American accent.
