Jake's acting was superb as usual. For this movie, Jake made his body became super thin body until his handsome face almost not visible anymore. Jake is able to portray Louis which from the outside looks nice and innocent but behind his personality, he is very dangerous.
We are presented with a suspenseful adventure Louis and coupled with action elements. The storyline is quite fast and intense. In this movie, we can see how behind the scenes actual TV news show that the rating is much more important than anything else.
Jake is a specialist in films that make us tense, think and certainly frowned. Again this is one of Jake's best performances. We can be made amazed by the ingenuity character in attitude and negotiate.
