The ONE good thing about this film is: Movies can't get stupider than this. (Although, don't underestimate Follywood. They're unprecedented at continually sinking lower...)
If you look in the Dictionary for the definition of "B.S.", it will say, "refer to the Film 'The Cold Light of Day'".

this is a grat Bruce Willis movie--although he is short lived in this film, it is still a great film as espionage goes.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance.

Okay suspense action movie but only a cameo part for Bruce Willis.

Decent enough movie but needed more of Willis!

I can think of one redeeming feature - the scenery at the beginning ; otherwise complete drivel. Once the scenery was gone, so was I.

Agree with the critics from Rotten Tomatoes: "Defined by needless, frenetic exertion in lieu of anything resembling inspiration." What a waste of a decent plot and actors: "Rather than defining those twists and turns with sharp punctuation, director Mabrouk El Mechri turns them into gentle speed bumps, making the film barely interesting rather than exhilarating ". My take was a movie with continuous over-dramatized scenes that slowed down the drama to "enough already! move along!"
