    It's a Guy Ritchie action pic with Jason Statham. It's full of macho insignificant characters, remorseless killing, spattering guts, and
    dead-end cartoon plot threads. I am partial to good revenge stories but
    this isn't one. Isn't good, I mean. I watched all the way to the end
    never once feeling tension, always thinking I'd seen all this before.
    You've seen it all before, too. Want to see it again? This is the movie
    for you.

    Isn't that enough? I actually saw this forgettable piece of predictable junk and was stunned by how pedestrian it is.

    Snip superfluous.

    Good that they're together though. Only one movie to avoid instead of two.

    I had to look it up in IMDB before writing this because I couldn't
    remember the title.

    Pedestrian is merely one of its faults. It was like the writer, the
    editor and the director never thought to collaborate. He interrupted a
    heist and the baddy took one look at him and ran. In any other movie
    this would have been a plot point, but not here. He shot two holes in a woman's couch, had a little talk with her which in any other movie would
    have led to a later incident, but no, not here. He humiliated a man at a
    pool table surrounded by the man's co-workers, which in any other movie
    would have led to something involving the man later, but not here.

    OK, that's it, I'm stopping, it's out of my system, no more need to
    shoot holes in this than Statham had to shoot that naked body with blood oozing out its anus. I'm done with this dreck now.
