As for Vic Armstrong, when asked what he felt was the most challenging of all the stunts and action sequences, he mused: "The hardest and most difficult sequence to do is all of them, because they all have to be original. Everything's been done before, but you have to be creative in putting different slants and flavors on it. There are so many good action films out there from Bond to Bourne and everything in between, so it's a huge challenge to come up with something that people will react to as cool and refreshing. I think we're up to that challenge on this film." See more »

The one star because the first five minutes of the movie are good. After that comes the cheesy and extremely predictable lines. You feel like you're literally gonna throw up! Who eats those lines? I'm going to make sure not to watch anything for this director again. He probably said to himself I just want a stupid movie as people are too dumb to notice!
Jessica Alba was good and very hot. She was I think the least cheesy element and the most talented in this awful excuse of a movie! It's movies like this that justify piracy.
Oh, Jason does not get a single punch landed on him. Maybe one in the whole movie. It's no surprise that he will battle scores of people, but he is too perfect to get a scratch. Pahh... even Superman got some good realistic beating last I saw...
