"You're scared, and scared people holding guns in my face... that scares me."
Journey along with a young man vacationing in Spain as he discovers that his family is far more interesting — and deadly — than he ever knew.
The Flick: The Cold Light of Day
The Skinny: Tunisian filmmaker Mabrouk El Mechri (JCVD) directed this spy thriller, which was shot entirely on location in Spain. Though not a favorite of critics, The Cold Light of Day is an entertaining little thrill ride with a cast of Hollywood veterans and a future "super" star. As one reviewer put it, the movie "isn't great cinema," but it's "relentlessly entertaining and almost giddily ridiculous."
The Players: Future Superman Henry Cavill (Immortals) stars as Will Shaw, an American businessman who flies to Spain to spend time with his family. An accident on the boat the family is staying on prompts Will to swim shore to get supplies, but he returns to find the boat abandoned and his family missing. When the local police don't seem too interested in helping him find his family, Will decides to take matters into his own hands and track down his family. Will gets in over his head and his father (Bruce Willis) swoops in to save the day, revealing that he is secretly an agent of the CIA and that the disappearance of their loved ones may be a bit more complicated than a simple kidnapping. Sigourney Weaver, Caroline Goodall, Verónica Echegui and Óscar Jaenada also star.
