Paint-by-numbers and utterly predictable home-invasion like thriller has some average performances including Bruce Willis who makes his (in my own collection at last) 12th one of these direct-to-video flicks from Grindstone Entertainment and gives it his least. Not terrible and I don’t mind a simplistic thriller but this one had low energy and characters making dumb decisions. Beyond that, confusingly seems like the filmmakers want to provide some sympathy of the antogonists, one a complete psychopath who killed two women in cold blood…
From what I read, apparently Bruce Willis gets something like $1M a day for these movies, with no publicity obligations. Must be nice.
Not terrible and I’ve certainly seen worse, but like most Grindstone movies, they’re competently shot, feature a somewhat experienced cast (this one has Chad Michael Murray who starred in the last few “Sniper” DTV films) but apparently they bought the script from some scrapheap. **2.25/5**
Oh how the mighty have fallen. It’s not that Frank (Bruce Willis) does that bad a role, but some of his co-actors really should look for a day job. There are two scenes in particular that will just make you laugh, even though they are not meant to.
The first is a scene where Jan (Lydia Hull) is running for her life across the garden, well, that’s what it’s supposed to look like anyway, but instead it’s a pathetic tiptoe across the lawn into the woods.
The second, and really the worst scene is where Frank (Bruce Willis) is helping Rich (Chad Michael Murray) into the barn. Rich has recently received a gunshot wound to the shoulder, but apparently that has caused him to get cerebral parese as well judging by the way he walks.
The subsequent scenes in the barn lacks the flair and drama of being the next house over from the assailants, there is no display of fear of getting discovered pertreyed, and it pulls the excitement level down and you loose touch with the action.
Without those two scenes I would give the movie a solid 5/10, but as it stands it pulls it down to a 2/10 for me.
Survived The Night but The night could’ve been better
Saw the trailer and it looked mediocre, but I thought \hey lets see what Bruce Willis has been up to’ and rented the film on demand.
The plot is very simple, which takes us through two brothers on the run to escape to Mexico after stealing loads of cash but are suddenly stopped in their tracks when one of the brothers gets shot in the leg and need medical assistance.
The vigilante’s find a clinic in the middle of nowhere and follow the doctor ( Chad Michael Murray) back to his father’s house (Bruce Willis) where the doc and his wife/daughter are staying after a accidental death lawsuit cased cause Rich and his family to leave the city.
So the Vigilante’s follow the Doc home and eventually take hold of the family and force the doc to fix his brother’s leg but the the family being take hostage wont go down without a fight.
There, thats my synopsis onto the review:
The film right off the bat seems low budget and the acting on the brother’s stand point seems very subpar, i however must tell you that actor – Shea Buckner – plays a very compelling and convincing idiot-psychotic brother but unfortunately not much was given for him to work with as the dialogue was very limited, but I did like his approach.
The story was simple, and some of the gunshot wounded scenes were pretty nice and enjoye dthose, but as the chase got on the story became a tad dull and he ultimate conclusion ended weirdly – I was left feeling Just Okay with the film. It wasn’t super bad and it just wasn’t super good, or even great for that matter.
Bruce Willis’s role as the father was good, I mean he did good for what his role was, i felt the tension of the bond between father and son, and it worked – I would like to see Willis and Shea Buckner come together in more defined film with a more compelling storyline.
* simple story
* not the greatest dialogue
* felt the relationship between both Brothers and the father son bond
* the story became dull towards the end
Review: 2.8 / 5 or 5 /10 – liked the story but the dialogue fell flat – chemistry was there, but the story as well as the conclusion was dull – wasn’t bad, but wasn’t great.

No my summary line is not suggesting this is a sequel to or has anything to do with the classic the longest day! Maybe you won’t even be able to survive the night .. I mean movie! And obviously I’m only being funny here, but the movie probably will stretch your patience at least a little bit.
Bruce Willis is known lately to do quite a lot of movies. And not being the main guy in them either, but getting top billing. Distributing and promoting is easier that way of course. But I reckon that most have seen through this – on the other hand people are still hot for Steven Seagal movies, so who am I to judge or derive you of anything? Anyway, this is a bog standard thriller that demands you suspend your disbelief and go with the flow (of the criminals and not logic)
