Remember: Directed by Dallas Lammiman. With Justin Lewis, Scott Heatcoat, Rachel Peacock, Carol Abbott. Carl’s job is to protect children in a society that has suffered from a great economic disaster. Following a traumatic incident, Carl receives a series of unusual messages that challenge him to remember his past, question his beliefs about families, and lead him to play a double role that not even he himself suspects.

“Iu0026#39;m a fan of real stories turned into movie when they revolve about an epic robbery and those robbed arenu0026#39;t worth of pity. This seemed to fit the genre. I didnu0026#39;t know what to expect from this, but the Rock is in it, so I thought, at least will be entertaining as he is the quintessential hero.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film is not dreadful, but it is kinda mediocre. Bad direction, bad production, mediocre acting, poor dialogues, bad tempo, lack of climax, lack of tension, lack of humour, lack of proper drama, lack of everything that makes this sort of movie interesting. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie is supposed to happen in the 1980s, but it looks more like the 70s, regarding, dress style, make up, hair, and overall looks. If you donu0026#39;t get something as basic right, how do you pretend us to believe the rest? u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting is uneven. The Rock underwhelms here, probably because the role doesnu0026#39;t suit his style, and he is not a proper actor, but more an action hero and I am OK when he does those sort of movies. Liam Hemsworth has potential, but he needs a bit of time off and focus on developing himself as an actor, because his lack of dramatic register was painful to watch here and not even the accent was believable; he is miscast here, and the film doesnu0026#39;t make him any favor or push his career forward, quite the contrary. Three people stand out to me in this film: Arangano as the most annoying Eddie, Ben-Victor as the good Chrisu0026#39; father, and Rispoli as the normal-guy Toni. Other supporting actors are OK in their respective roles as not much is expected from them and they are stereotypical baddies.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is a pity that despite the story being really interesting a priori, this people wasted millions of dollars to produce a B movie. If I had had to pay for this, I would be furious. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf a movie doesnu0026#39;t entertain you, doesnu0026#39;t make you laugh, doesnu0026#39;t move you, doesnu0026#39;t have a decent settings, or the right actors for the characters, well, why bother?”
