It's a shame to see Deran Sarafian has ended up directing episodes of TV shows because he proves with this, his best film, that he's a very competent hand at the helm of a big action film. Admittedly he's helped by the two leads, Charlie Sheen and Nastassja Kinski, who have the C-word... Chemistry, not to mention the villains, James Gandolfini and Chris McDonald who have the B-word...

The stunt work is both impressive and breath taking because you can see it's genuine witness the nail biting scene involving a car in free fall would it be half as exciting if it was done with CGI?
