I understand this is just another routine Statham shoot-em-up film, but cmon! The first 30 minutes were awesome! Then it turns into the cliche story of revenge... I mean, if you're fine with Statham messing some people up, watch this.. but goodnight! Can an audience get some creativity!?!

Jason Statham was at his best in this movie! Lot's of action and some laughs. I rather see JLo as an actress than a singer, she was great!

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.

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.

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!
