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.

The movie started well and kept me intrigued with its plot and action. All was fine until BAM!! JLo comes into the picture, and you raise your hands and say WTF???? She was absolutely NOT integral to the movie. She did nothing to further the plot. She completely destroyed the movie's momentum. The worst part of the movie had to be when JLo strips down to her bra and panties. She has a fat, flabby, sagging ***that was incredibly horrible at best. The fact that they did not edit it out makes me wonder if JLo still thinks she has a hot body. Sorry lady, you are middle aged and it is apparent you don't squat. Leave the naked body shots to those who have a nice body. And please stay away from movies altogether.
Wait for it on dvd IF you must watch.

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.
