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.

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.

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!

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.

I've always liked Jason's movies but never thought his acting was that good. This is his best movie and acting performance ...by far. go see it
