Goofs

The scene were David Harbour and Jamie Fox are fighting in the spa. They both fall in the spa while still fighting and shortly after this they both get calls on their cell phones. Jamie's character even looks at the ringing phone and it is still wet. The chances of both phone working would be next to none. See more »

It sets a very low bar
7 April 2017 | by IanSee all my reviews

Jamie Foxx is always good value, especially when he's wounded. Although the only difference between his wounded and non-wounded state is that he stops every now and again, groans, feels his wound then takes off again as if nothing had happened.

I will refrain from making any jokes about the title - I'm sure there are plenty in the reviews here already - just to say that it bears no relevance to the movie at all.

Anyway, back to the movie. The direction, etc is just fine with a few set pieces, but the story is derivative, predictable and by the numbers. You'll even guess who the 'baddie' is long before the end.

As cop/action flicks go, it's not bad, but the point is, do you really want to spend your life watching so-so movies. There was absolutely no point in making this movie or telling this story, Jamie Foxx fans notwithstanding.

So if you're happy with low-bar movies, go watch it, but maybe you want to raise your expectations and, hope beyond hope, perhaps filmmaker will raise their game. But don't hold your breath.
