I went with my Husband he loved it! Jennifer was very good! The movie was very bloody,and I covered my eyes and ears for most of the movie! It was violent but charming. Glad I went I am glad that Jennifer is acting again! There was a bit to much blood but enjoyed the ending!

Just a note, I'm a huge fan of Jason Statham. If you think that obscured a review of this movie, then don't continue reading. For those of you who are still reading, I loved it - there were lots of action scenes and an actual plot. Would not let kids watch this though because of the violence in it. Great movie and I will most likely watch it again!

Weakest story line and characters I've ever seen in a Jason Stathan action film. The concept of a cross over between a British hunk/martial arts fighter and American trailer trash con just did not work. All the characters lack any spark and fall flat--by the end it didn't matter, to me, if they lived or died. I wasn't really sure when the movie ended but I followed the rest of the auidience leaving the auditorium. This film would truly justify "stealing" a second movie at a multiplex. I have been more invovled, excited and turned on by a electronic store ad I got in the mail than this movie. I've never seen Jenifer L so dull. I don't know if they were trying to make her look unattracive but they did a great job of it. This is one of Jason's bad movies--and I say that with great regret and disapointment. I wanted to like this movie but it was just too boring---cast of dozens shot in dowtown Bush Parie (population 526)..

I had trouble believing many parts of the movie. The viewers have to fill in the blanks with some of the open ended clues. Typical role for Jason. Tough as nails self righteous bad*** that just won't die. JLo's role was the most far fetched. Recently divorced and desperately seeking companionship..desperately. All in all, it wasn't horrible.

If you want to see Stratham in a first rate movie, See "SAFE", which has twice the action, more of a story and a much bigger budget. This movie gave me the feeling of a low budget action movie, even though Stratham is one of my favorite action stars.
I agree with the other reviews that said that Lopez was thrown in to try to help the box office draw, but even though I love her, she did little to help the movie.
It is rated R due to some unnecessary nudity but in general it was a violent PG. I doubt that I would see this movie again even on Redbox.
