Family kidnap sparks chase
BUSINESS consultant Will Shaw (Cavill) joins his father Martin (Bruce Willis), mother Laurie (Caroline Goodall), younger brother Josh (Rafi Gavron) and his girlfriend Dara (Emma Hamilton) on board the family yacht in Spain the very same week that his company is threatened with bankruptcy.
The timing of the holiday couldn't be worse and Will's Blackberry continually trills and buzzes to the obvious irritation of Martin, who eventually throws the device overboard.
Will is apoplectic – as much as Cavill can convey – and he swims ashore to acquire a new phone.
When he returns, Will discovers his loved ones have been abducted.

A plea for help to local police exposes a dark family connection to feisty CIA agent Jean Carrack (Sigourney Weaver) and her henchman Gorman (Joseph Mawle).
With less than 24 hours to rescue his family, Will places his trust in a beautiful stranger called Lucia (Veronica Echegui) to guide him through Madrid's teeming streets.
The Cold Light Of Day is an interminable bore, lacking suspense, solid performances or a coherent plot.
Continuity errors abound – Will's swim bag has miraculous vanishing powers – and every role is woefully undernourished.
Car chases appear to be conducted within European speed limits, despite the best efforts of composer Lucas Vidal to crank up the tempo with his generic score.
"I'm getting sick of this!" growls Weaver's character halfway throughout one protracted night-time set piece.
We echo her sentiments entirely, between yawns.
