An Italian attempt at making Taken (2008) but with far less substance and thrills. This is not a film I will remember

If only they had added "I have a particular set of skills..." it might have been better. Netflix advertises this film well showing Fabrizio Gifuni as a tough, no nonsense, 'get the job done' anti-hero central to the movie. Sadly though, the film didn't meet the hope or expectations I had for it. The good and the bad: When the end graphic 'The Beast' is better than the movie, you know something went wrong.From a broad view the story is fine, even if it has been told many times, i.e. young girl or family member is kidnapped leaving the father to get them back.Fabrizio Gifuni almost looks the part, grizzled with a very big beard. However, for a man who supposedly spent 30 years in special forces he is a scrawnyStemming from the last point, the only relevance I can see in learning he was in special forces for 30 years was to give the impression he has a 'particular set of skills which make men like him dangerous to people who might kidnap his daughter'. However, he doesn't display any more skill than a determined father who can handle himself.The film fails to develop the characters leaving the viewer not caring that much. For example, we don't learn much about the young girl who is kidnapped other than her big brother leaves her eating chips at a table where, predictably, it all goes 'pete tong' (wrong).Typical to the Italian stereotype, the film has great hype but no substance. The negatives could go on, but it would be like shooting fish in a barrel (i.e. easy). It's not a film I will remember and much like Sabotage (2014) this review will be the only reminder I once saw it.

Guy's a punching bag.

This movie is watchable, but not as good as I had hoped. Guy just gets his ass kicked most of the time. Should have gave the script to Scott Adkins.
