Empire (UK) - - ON. SCREEN - Ch

DI­REC­TOR Dono­van Marsh cast Ger­ard But­ler, Gary Old­man, Linda Cardellini, Com­mon, Toby Stephens

WHAT’S LONG, HARD, and full of sea­men? Gerry But­ler’s new film, in which the Scot­tish tough nut takes a break from res­cu­ing the Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent in the [INSERT WORD] Has Fallen movies to res­cue the Rus­sian Pres­i­dent in­stead. Com­ing on like an un­of­fi­cial Tom Clancy adap­ta­tion, Dono­van Marsh’s thriller flits be­tween the ac­tion up top, where a se­ri­ously rugged Toby Stephens im­presses as a Spe­cial Forces badass, a com­mand bunker where spe­cial guest star Gary Old­man shouts at peo­ple, and the Hunter Killer sub, where But­ler gives good sto­icism. no cliché is left un­turned, but this is sur­pris­ingly solid stuff.
