Jason Statham uses his smoldering charisma to great effect.

Time Out

The acting might be shoddy, the plot nonsense and the dialogue clunky, but the fighting is exquisitely done. Inventive, athletic, fun, stylish and tight, it's everything the rest of the film isn't.

Immensely exciting and funny -- and it even has a Proust joke.

Kills time between car chases and martial-arts bouts with random scuba-diving footage apparently culled from producer-co-writer Luc Besson's The Big Blue.

It's high rent Steven Segal -- fights, explosions, and more fights, but with a flair.

Due to Jason Statham's larger than life persona, you might expect this to be over the top and unbelievable from a logical standpoint. However, this can be… More
