Virgil Vadalos: Everyone. Kill everyone. That's what he taught me. No time for doubts, no time for hesitation, no time for feelings, no time for friends, no time for family.

Not bad at all
21 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was expecting very little from this, given the low rating here, but found myself pleasantly surprised. This is really a much better film than it's being given credit for. There's a depth of characterisation in the script that you don't find in the average B-movie. The cast, too, are well above average. Most of the actors are past-their-prime Hollywood notables who may not earn the big bucks any more but can still turn in a decent performance.

The action sequences are decent and, for the most part, realistic.

I was surprised to discover that the burly cop was actually the writer of the script.

All in all, this is definitely worth a watch.
