After a former elite agent rescues a 12-year-old Chinese girl who's been abducted, they find themselves in the middle of a standoff between Triads, the Russian Mafia and high-level corrupt New York City politicians and police.
So Jason Statham once again plays his tough guy with pure tough purpose. He is tougher than tough as nails. So much so that you never feel his main character in peril. He's always in full control. The entertainment comes more from how efficiently he can dispose of the opposition against an orgy of action, violence and tough man dialogue. Even his pistol has more bass than anybody else's.
Nothing wrong with this sort of thing, pure entertainment. 8/10
I always like Jason Statham with his martial arts style of fighting, his shoot first and ask questions later policy and this movie is no exception. It's a real popcorn movie. The story is somewhat subpar to the action scenes, but the action is very good.
Overall i can definitely recommend this movie. If you want some nice entertainment and see a movie you have not seen before than you can't go wrong with this one.
i'm not sure what you expect from statham films but i always like his work although i agree with you on his last movies being killer elite that was just ok & blitz was poor to say the least but safe was excellent i really enjoyed it. great movie, great story & everything you expect from a statham flick... lots of action!!
