Goofs

When Xander first meets Serena at the party on the island she is wearing a pair of thigh-length boots with very high heels; later, when we see her on the beach after the fight and motorbike chase, she is wearing boots of the same design, but now with a more practical flat heel. See more »

Not much
12 February 2017 | by dziemkeSee all my reviews

This movie was pretty awful on so many levels. First, Diesel seems to sleep walk through his lines and scenes. The slight tilt of the head and cute smirk got old after the first 5 minutes. Donnie Yen's fight scenes were really good, and that's about the best this film brings. The writing was atrocious. The snarky, too-cute and cliché lines at every turn. I didn't know if I was watching a movie or reading the one-liner comebacks from a comedy show. It's too bad because this movie had a good cast. Toni Colette needs to stick to heavier roles; she looked out of place in this role. And more Samuel Jackson. I've been hoping for better films to come out of the new China-owned studios, but so many have disappointed lately. Maybe Jet Li could have saved this film, I'm not sure.
