This word seems to lose it's meaning, but ill say it again: Fun
This movie is fun! Nothing more than that.
Jason Statham is back and though this is not a good movie, it is a fun one and if you expected more than that you have no one else to blame but yourself.
Ill rate the movie with my usual ratingssystem which contains rating a few aspect of the movie with an overall total score at the end
Acting: 5/10. If Jason Statham looking stoically at everyone/everything isn't enough, we got jessica alba being used as a sex symbol first and an actress second. From Jason I can take it since it's his schtick, but jessica... yikes!
Action: 7/10. Though there were some cool scenes in there, nothing is original or great by any means. The action in the first the mechanic was better choreographed than in here.
Cinematography: 8/10. it is actually well shot and the action that is there is greatly shot with some wide angles here and there.
Dialogue: 3/10. I think they didn't even make a screenplay/script. they just went for it and came out with this.
Overall: 5/10. Wouldn't recommend it. It is fun and if there's nothing else in the cinemas i would recommend it while you were drunk and paid the matinée price :)
