Really like jason in this movie. I love his accent and he's not so bad to look at either. Non stop action throughout the entire movie. I don't know why Jennifer Lopez was in it, nor a few other scenes that the movie could have done without, but overall great flick and worth seeing it in the theater. If you are a J-Lo fan, she's barely a character in this flick, but in long enough to show us her stellar curves-Dang, she looks good for her age! Go see this!

This movie was not that good. It started out strong, I was really in to it for the first 30 to 40 minutes, but then it just went downhill. You would think with this being a Jason Statham movie it would have really good fight scenes, but it didn't. Don't get me wrong it had fight scenes, but they were border line stupid. Also, I'm not a hater but Jennifer Lopez was awful in this movie. I give it a 6 out of 10.

The beginning and middle of the film were great, but the ending stunk. Statham as usual was great. His fighting skills are amazing. J-Lo was annoying. I could not stand her character. I would say wait for cable. Not worth the price of admission.

Taylor Hackford has succeeded in directing a movie where the lead acts on principle, undeterred by financial or sexual temptations. Parker is as tough as nails and relentless in his pursuit of justice. At one point the Patti Lupone character declares, "Now that's a real man." So true. Good performances turned in by Stratham, Lopez and Lupone. This is a movie well worth seeing.

I loved this movie from the get-go. Statham brings back his code of honor for criminals; much like the ones in his Transporter films. I think he is creating a nice guy crook for future endeavors. The storyline is an old one; but this is so well done you don't really care or notice. Yes it has some violent scenes and super fast nudity ones. I can see the Parker character becoming the platform for more movies, like Bruce Wills and the Die Hard series. The plot moved along great, due to the directors speed control of the story. I thought it flowed very well and never was I bored or wishing it would slow or speed up. I can say go and spend a nice two hours at the movie theater with the confidence that you will enjoy this one as much as I did.
