Perlman is great in the lead role and Caton-Jones takes his time telling the story of Asher. Sadly, the plot is a very old hat and while it fits the tone and performances it never thrills or surprises. And the romance between Perlman and Jansen feels too forced and they don´t have the right chemistry. Still the movie entertains and keeps you invested enough.
