Stevie is seen injecting drugs after George and Yuri's training sequence. Letting alone the fact that his arm has unbelievably good veins for someone who has been shooting for years, and the fact he appears to inject retrogradely into muscle rather than vein there is in addition a revealing prop: he pushes the needle about 3cm into his arm and then pulls it away revealing that the needle is now 3cm shorter. In a prop like this the needle pushes into the syringe giving the illusion that it goes into the body. Normally the needle is spring-loaded so that it pushes back out, but this did not occur with this prop. See more »

This is by far Isaac's best movie to date! This movie is reminiscent of the '80s action flicks. The film will appeal to the masses due to its charismatic leads, impressive fight sequences and its varying plays on the audience's emotions.
Regarding Isaac's choice for the lead players: Scott Adkins has the potential to become the next big thing for action movies. He has the moves, the has the looks and the build and on top of all of that he can act!
This film, I think, shows Isaac at his best and I was very impressed! Some of the scenes had me slack-jawed and cheering.
Again, I was very impressed and I sincerely look forward to watching his next film.
My hat's off to Isaac!
