Jason Statham provides some hard hitting...hits. Weak on the verbiage tonight. Pretty good story, a bit of conspiracy, but overall a good, mindless action flick. He kills the shit out of some people.

I just watched it with my wife. If I had gone to the cinema to see it, I would've been disappointed. It was entertaining, but could've been a better screenplay.

Worth the $1.20 on Redbox, but definitely seen much better.

Agreed. My wife digs Statham, and I must admit his fight scenes make me go "ewwww" alot and rub my wind pipe.

ETA: A good line from the movie -

Bad Cop : "He's in the hospital because you broke his fucking trachea!"

Statham: "I didn't know a trachea could break"


One thing I did find myself scratching my head about was the full blown, widespread corruption of the NYC PD. A few bad cops? OK, I'll buy it. Almost the entire police force and Mayor? not so much.
