Indubitably the worst movie since the Transporter sequel. Actually makes "Suicide Squad" seem marginally less wrist-slittingly awful. The plot (if you can call it that "i'm doing this for the children..." *vom*) is possibly the worst thing to happen to mankind since Mr Hitler's condom broke in 1888. There are more inconsistencies than a Clinton/Trump debate, the acting is about as hideously poor as it gets (Jessica Alba? I mean are you kidding me!?!) "Continuity" is not a word or concept the filmmakers (if you can call them that) are familiar with. "Resolution" also seems to have escaped them. There are odd characters who appear, have a momentarily profound purpose (first 3 minutes of the movie) and then disappear with zero explanation. The fight scenes are fairly well done - but the director (if you can call him that) sacrificed his integrity for his blatant (very obvious) crush on Statham who can't seem to get through a scene without being made to take his top off. Alba, regrettably possessed of little else in the way of talent - should have appeared topless instead and as often - at least she would have lent something to the movie. And what idiot casts Michelle Yeoh in a movie and doesn't have a single fight scene with her in it? (perhaps one who had her fighting in it, but let her get cut because she is a far superior action star and upstaged Statham??)
All in all, an absolute travesty of a movie. It is watchable once - but only if are drunk, have been lobotomized, and the only other option is dragging your genitalia down a street of broken glass and razor blades while a bunch of lepers throw raw sewage at your wounds.
