Consensus: Hardcore Jason Statham fans may enjoy parts of Wild Card, but all other action aficionados need not apply.

James Rocchi

It's hard to not feel a slight sense of disappointment when what looks like a steaming hot slab of fresh action filmmaking hot off the grill turns out to be microwaved leftovers.

Sadly, "Wild Card" is no royal flush, no full house, no three of a kind. A bust is I think the term I'm searching for.

Much of the climactic energy is focused on a series of trumped-up, ultraviolent fight sequences. Most of the narrative depth gets lost in the process.

There will be abundant laying waste of unworthy opponents, and the groans you hear will not be his.

No stranger to piloting action films, West allows the yarn to unwind at a perfectly measured pace.

Piles of noirish exposition get the better of Jason Statham in this unpleasantly retrograde crime drama. What happened in Vegas should have stayed there.

Slow-motion knockouts follow, with Mr. Statham as sure-fisted as ever, but the "Expendables" director Simon West can only summon dead air in between.

A largely forgettable lark, notable more for its slight diversions from action-movie norms than anything else.

Unjustly ignored.

Generic and fairly mundane, Wild Card is an underwhelming action film. When one of his friends is beaten and raped Nick Wild, a private security specialist,… More

Statham is as Statham does and if that's all you look for in a movie then you'll be intermittently pleased with this Heat remake. But if you're… More

Wild Card starts off by quickly setting up two intriguing predicaments. One is to show what our main character, Nick Wild (Jason Statham), does for a living… More
