When Talia and Jeremy are shooting. Six cans are set up. He shoots nine times, he hits three cans but you can hear him hit four cans. There are three cans left on the log. Talia shoots five times and hits all five but there were only supposed to be three on the log. Then Jeremy shoots again the "three remaining cans" and hits all three. Total of eleven(visual)/twelve (audible) cans shot. See more »
Josh D. is not built for a role like this. He might be good at the romantic stuff he does, but as a lead in an action packed movie like this, it feels like he's a fish out of water. Or a fireman without water. Both not ideal in any case. Rosario Dawson is good as always, but she doesn't have much to do. Even the charismatic Vincent D'Onofrio, who's the best of the bunch in here, has more presence than our lead actor. Not to mention a almost perfect phone call with our main guy.
The action scenes are very good. There will be blood so to speak. It doesn't skip on the violence. It does skip on the logic part ... but that's not the reason you chose to watch this movie. It's entertaining enough, if you generally watch a lot of movies. Do not rent this because of appearances by the Jacksons (Curtis (50 Cent) and/or Rampage). They're not really long enough in the movie. And their story line isn't really thought through either. Anyway ...
