The events never become outlandish. There's not much suspension of disbelief needed. The movie just gets right down to business delivering some tense encounters. It's all pretty entertaining. Some scenes overreach when attempting a '127 Hours' type of emotion. I was locked into the action at every turn, but the character moments were not as investing. Blake Lively holds the movie together serviceably well. Nothing here really goes above and b...
