Killer cop versus cop killer.
I like most all Jason Statham movies and my wife just loves Jason Statham. We picked this one as it was relatively short and he rarely fails to deliver. In fact, I don’t think he has ever failed to do so. While this movie was fairly decent, albeit a tired storyline, it failed to deliver on one thing that we took for granted – action. Of course, I do believe Statham can act within his own stereotypical role, I did not expect there to be such a lack of action. Statham movies should have a minimal requirement for ass-kicking. It’s expected.
So, while reading that tagline up at the top, it may be a little misleading. That is what the story is about, but it’s more of a cat and mouse chase than anything else. It’s still a good movie and well worth watching, but check your expectations first. I guess I should have checked the genre list…action is absent there also.
