Why such bad ratings?
12 February 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie does not deserve such bad ratings , below average ? 3.3 ? No sir , This movie at least deserves a 5 . Well it certainly is not based on the game and that is the only reason which might be pissing of the viewers . Leaving that point the movie is good and to be loved by any action lover . The actions scenes are performed well. Til Schweiger performing the lead role is up to the mark . He did good at what he should . The movie runs very fast and there is no time to feel bored. But well yeah , my rating is 5. Because when i looked at the budget which was 30 mil i certainly had high hopes and expectations which later let me down. The movie does not leave me dissatisfied and that is why i give it a medium rating. It is a good watch for an action lover.
