Goofs

Near the beginning of the movie, text is displayed on screen showing interesting and fun facts about each character. Tennyson Torch's facts include his longest lasting relationship: his rugby mouth-guard. The problem is, Tennyson's mouth-guard has a protruding strap with which to affix it to a helmet mounted face-guard, which is not used in the sport of Rugby. 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.
