The screenplay is an old project of Sylvester Stallone. It was written many years before but it was never realized and then abandoned due to his age. It came back into fashion when Jason Statham showed interest. See more »
Clancy Brown's character is credited as "Sheriff Keith Rodrigue" but his uniform's name plate says "Rodriguez". See more »
I was very pleased with this movie. Its got the action you want, a believable story to keep the momentum going and a handful of good actors to support it.
First of all, I LOL at all the people criticizing the plot, dialog, character development etc, again let me LOL. People watch Jason's movies for the a** kicking action and fight scenes. I will admit, some of his movies I think about giving up at the half way mark, but this was one of his better films for sure.
Transporter, Homefront, Hummingbird would be my favorite Statham movies not including the Guy Ritchie classics of course.
8/10 will definitely watch again.
