    I watched it last night, and I enjoyed it. Good cast, good plot, and some T&A. :naughty:

    It was a little too long, IMO.

    He is one of my favorite actors and I was terribly bored by that movie after the nudity ended. Did not like it at all.

    Loved him in the transporters, crank, the italian job ... not here. Movie felt very slow, old, and boring, just like the movie Bullit.

    Caught this on Monday. Wasn't thorougly impressed with it. had some good moments but nothing too spectacular.

    it was worth the watch I suppose.

    one of the best movies statham has been in.

    so much better than the transporters, and infinitely better than the shit he's been in lately, like War and For The King or whatever that bullshit was.

    I believe so, then just knock them off one by one after the job was done.

    I watched it again last night, and the more I think about it the more I liked it. I thought the pacing was just right and Statham's character was a little overboard. He went out like he didn't have anythign to lose.


    *******SPOILER************





























    Now, if those people were able to get to the other members of the bank team and kill them, they should have been able to get to Statham's family. Which would have made him think twice about throwing everything back in their faces like that.
