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.
