It sets a very low bar
7 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Jamie Foxx is always good value, especially when he's wounded. Although the only difference between his wounded and non-wounded state is that he stops every now and again, groans, feels his wound then takes off again as if nothing had happened.

I will refrain from making any jokes about the title - I'm sure there are plenty in the reviews here already - just to say that it bears no relevance to the movie at all.

Anyway, back to the movie. The direction, etc is just fine with a few set pieces, but the story is derivative, predictable and by the numbers. You'll even guess who the 'baddie' is long before the end.

As cop/action flicks go, it's not bad, but the point is, do you really want to spend your life watching so-so movies. There was absolutely no point in making this movie or telling this story, Jamie Foxx fans notwithstanding.

So if you're happy with low-bar movies, go watch it, but maybe you want to raise your expectations and, hope beyond hope, perhaps filmmaker will raise their game. But don't hold your breath.
