I'm baffled by some of the reviews I've seen of this film. I saw it
this weekend and think it's really strong. Clive Owen and Jason Statham
are both excellent as... elite killers. The action is great, the story
is intricate and watching the plot unfold is just fun. You've got a
group of mercenaries on a dubious mission, a group of ex-SAS stumbles
on to them and then both sides are trying to figure out who the other
guys are and what they're up to. Maybe it throws some people that there
are no clear cut good guys and bad guys here. Both sides are
essentially bad guys acting out of a questionable sense of what is
right. But that's what made it interesting to me.
The film is at it's best when Owen and Statham are on screen together either coming after each other, fighting or staring each other down. Add a gun wielding, ass kicking De Niro into the mix and I'm happy sitting in a dark theater and munching popcorn.
