Excellent action and suspense movie with cellular starring and great cast
The movie centers the abduction of Kim Basinger and her son carried out by Jason Statham and others . She speaks by telephone with Chris Evans' cellular and he tries to free her. Chris is helped by a good police, played by William H. Macy , and his girlfriend , Jessica Biel.
In the movie there are car pursuits , thriller , surprises , emotions and it is enough amusing . From start to finish the noisy action pace is unstopped. The confrontation between the starring and the nasties is stimulating and stunning . The races of cars in the motorway are breathtaking and overwhelming and there are a little bit of humor concerning to a cocky driver. The picture obtained a great success at the box office all around the world , it's a real blockbuster. Kim Basinger interpretation is top-notch , she is beautiful in spite of being fifty years old . Chris Evans is nice , he has a good future . Chris Evans did his own car stunts. Before production began, he was trained for five weeks at a Los Angeles stunt school. Most of the stunts are done by the actors themselves, too .
The support cast is riveting : Jason Statham makes an fascinating villain and William H. Macy interprets magnificently an agreeable pólice .
The motion picture was well directed by David R. Ellis, a good craftsman who started as stuntsman and director assistant . He has made nice and suspenseful thrillers such as Final destination , Asylum , Snakes on the plane and Jaws 3D . The yarn will appeal action-packed and suspense fans. Rating : 7/10 .Well catching.
