THE COLD LIGHT OF DAY (2012 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

The Cold Light of Day shows Bruce Willis without the charisma he showed in Die Hard and other action flicks. Henry Cavill, not a good casting choice here, has a difficult time juggling ‘ordinary kid’ with sophistication, almost as if he can’t make up his mind who he is. The script has a decent theme, but the portrayal of that script doesn’t work at any level. The best and strongest portrayal of character award goes to Sigourney Weaver. The film on a whole is a disappointment.

Storyline

Will (Henry Cavill) goes to Spain for a family visit and runs into more than he bargained.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

 Maybe. The film has action, but no cool. It’s not the usual quality expected in a movie with Bruce Willis.
