Good attempt by Simon West and Jason Statham.
4 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

But at the same time a very unusual one.

The movie has all the action I would expect from the two who had already worked together on The Expendables 2, but it seems to be more dramatic than action, or at least that was the attempt.

I can see why it did not get much attention for it's theatrical run. You would think Jason Statham in a Simon West film would be enough but there is some depth to the movie that off sets the whole thing.

Jason Statham plays some what of a solder of fortune in legend more than anything else, who gets hired to pull off some odd jobs, but an old friend hires him to help her take care of her rapist, which opens up a new can of worms.

As an action movie, the plot here works perfectly. Than the filmmakers decides to develop Jason Statham's character past the one dimension needed for the action hero prototype.

Jason does pull it off but it's weird, and it does not make the movie better, only longer.

Overall Statham does his thing in this West film and that's all that matters. Worth paying to see.
