What works : 1. Jason Statham : Intense Performance 2. Good...no excellent and innovative fights, great action
What doesn't : 1. Plot - They seem to have lost focus on the plot. Could have been so much better, intense, interesting. 2. Unrealistic - The movement of cash, comes goes comes again and how! You have to watch to and even then you wont believe it. 3. Not enough development/space for any other character. 4. Sophia Vergara had a guest appearance.Barely 5 minutes. Seriously guys! How could you?
Overall, for Statham fan or action move fans. Decide what you are looking for before you decide to go.
