I was looking forward to this movie because I love Jason Statham. It was really disappointing! Bad script, poor use of he beautiful Jennifer Lopez and silly story lines- the whole movie was a foregone conclusion. All that and ultra-bloody, too. Bummer.

Great, exciting, action packed, great acting by all, well written, great acting, great scenes and setting. I cannot wait for the sequel. Jason delivered, as did Jennifer and all the others. The biggest surprise was Jennifer. I am typically not a fan of hers but her performance in this movie won me over. Jennifer keep making movies like this, you working with Jason is a great team. SEE THIS MOVIE!!

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.

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.

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.
