You want me to put a tail on him?
No, it's a waste of time. They always fumble them. These guys could lose a tail if it was attached to a dog. We're done.

The film starts OK with nasty men doing nasty things, which obviously are somehow going to link to our hero.
However before we know it, Liam is in a bedroom with his dead ex-wife, and of course has to pick up the murder weapon. He then decides the only way to deal with this is to beat up the Police Officers who have been called to help.
Then came the turn off moment for me (and I have only ever done that a couple of times ever)
We get a freeway pursuit that is so badly filmed and directed as to be completely incoherent. No cut lasts more than about two seconds and it made absolutely no sense whatsoever. There are crashes and flying cars and trucks losing their loads but none of it makes any sense at all.
If you want to see one of the best "pursuit" sequences in a film ever, watch Ronin and then watch the added scenes to show how real and how well directed it was.
This is as far from that as you could ever get. It is appallingly bad.
Sadly, that was it for me and I abandoned it to watch another film.
What a waste of talent.
