I don't recommend this movie at all, very bad and a waste of time. There's a brief fight scene and lots of chasing in cars and on foot, with crashes. Kids and other people too feel disempowered and unable to control their own lives — like Billy, shuffled from foster home to foster home. He's really at the top of his game. But not be so harsh she is human and things are said at times when emotions are high as was the case with Shannon. There's no doubt at all that needy first world couples do suffer through adoption scams, such as suggested by Reclaim. Along with him, he has two friends who send a bad vibe to anyone with a brain.
Oh, no, no, that's all care of. It's probably better and less confusing if you didn't. Reviewers did praise the film's acting and scenery, with highlighting child star Brianna Roy out as a highlight. One morning the girl is found to be missing and on the search the couple discover a horrible con: reclaiming, when an adopted child is kidnapped from the family after the fees have been collected and used to process another adoption. For example, a trip to the bank to pick up the ransom money goes laughably wrong as both the good guys and bad guys try to outwit each other, with increasingly idiotic moves. Ignoring advice from local officials, the couple try to retrieve their daughter, only to end up on the wrong end of a madman's rage. John Cusack doesn't deliver a stellar performance.
Phillippe and LeFevre have been good and had as police lieutenant Luis Guzman tells them. It's an adoption agency run by Jacki Weaver and the couple has laid down some heavy bread for their new daughter Briana Roy. Let's give another example of stupidity. The girl loves them instantly and the parents feel the same way. The big mystery is not on film.
Reigert, nice to meet you finally. Cusack who should be more discerning I think is going to have this shite to deal with the rest of his career. All in all skip the movie and if you are interested in the problem of human trafficking there are plenty of other places to find real stories. How did the filmmakers achieve this? Um, actually, I'm tip our driver. The endless chase scenes are equally uninspired and illogical, but at least Nina is kept mostly safe. It also fails to utilize the exotic scenery as it goes into random abandoned building, alleyway or forest when it needs to deliver the climax. All the bad get killed, all the good guys survive even Guzman who looked like he died gives us an alive wink to show he survived a massive bullet to his head.
Holding Nina, they force the couple to send their entire savings, which is largely compensation for the car accident that left them unable to conceive. Unable to have a child after a traffic accident, nice couple Shannon and Steven have come to Puerto Rico to adopt a little Haitian girl, Nina Briana Roy , who was orphaned by the 2010 earthquake there. Obviously, they're not all like this, but in situations of adoption, it is best to go with those organizations that are extremely reputable. All right, Cusack and Guzman are pretty good but the whole movie is as probable as the New York Giants winning the Super Bowl. This film has a strong well directed cast and a solid story line and as I mentioned before, some great twists.
However, they were all very good in their roles. . Can she even speak at all beyond the approximately 4 words I have mentioned that we hear in this movie? I give 1, because the topic is something, that people should be educated, especially those who want to adopt. If you ignore the small errors in this movie, you will be entertained. It's the of killed could now 200,000.
Ryan Phillipe and Rachelle Lefevre play a married couple who cannot have kids, so they adopt a little Haitian girl - Nina. The guy's locked in the trunk of a car, banging away, punching and kicking at the inside of the locked hood, as if that's going to help, and this goes on and on, and then suddenly he remembers he has a gun in his sock, so he shoots the lock and of course it doesn't ricochet into his face as it probably would instead it magically opens the locked trunk. Much of the negative criticism centered around the film's plot, which many reviewers found too overly familiar and formulaic. He is granted great power by the old wizard Shazam Djimon Housou , who transforms him into a full-grown man Zachary Levi with a range of super abilities. Here goes an hour and a half of my life for nothing. In other words no real reason to continue watching.
He could have been developed further to give us a better understanding of his actions. I give this a B. Whatever message and decent premise Reclaim might have, they are utterly squandered by the abysmal production value. Set in Puerto Rico, a well-off couple Steven Phillippe and Shannon Lefevre arrive on the island to pick up their newly adopted seven-year-old daughter Nina Briana Roy. The answer is that contemporary superhero films are wedded to an action movie formula designed for adults, by adults.
Her adoptive mom just happened to be a scam artist. I'm voting 10 stars to spite these people here. If you are not familiar with human trafficking then this is a primer for you: Human Trafficking 101. Lightning strikes a deal with his new boss: Let him race one more time, and if he loses, he'll retire and spend his golden years shilling products. This could have been a tense, gritty thriller. Characters are also tied up and kidnapped. In the movie itself, characters threaten each other with guns, and some characters are shot and killed.
