Reasons. We all got our reasons to do crazy and reckless things in life. Mostly they don't help you though. Not when you're left to pick up the pieces. But if the reason's love, maybe it's not so crazy, 'cause people believe in love. They know it keeps the world turning. And right now, that's the only thing keeping me alive.

Two dimensional characters, hackneyed plot and plot devices, very unrealistic pretty much everything including the behaviour of the main villain - Anthony Hopkins must be ashamed for having a central role in this movie.
I can hardly find anyone who could enjoy this movie. It's not for adults, that's for sure, because its love story is just too simple and repulsing, however the young might enjoy it for its reckless car chases and kisses, fist fights and chivalry.
I pity everyone who starred in this movie. It could have been a very average straight to DVD B-movie but given the range of actors it's simply unwatchable.
This could be a perfect product placement movie on a par with the Fast and Furious franchise. This movie and this franchise share a lot of common. Missing realism is their common staple.
The final twist couldn't save this movie. It just made it even more sickly-sweet.
