Much better than expected
When I started watching this movie, I didn't expect much. in fact with
Snipes and Statham, I assumed this was a typical silly action flick,
like transporter 2. But I was wrong, very wrong. In fact this movie is
really good. I've enjoyed watching it, which is a big thing cause it
was quite a while since the last time I could say that to a movie. In
my opinion Snipes plays a really good villain. But unfortunately for
the fans, he doesn't get much screen time. OK, there are some clichés
in the story, but it's still not a bad one, and you can't guess what
will happen next. The only major weakness in the movie IMHO is Ryan
Phillipe, his performance is just simply BAD (that should be in bold).
If it wasn't for him I'd give this movie an eight. So all in all, I
think this movie is worth watching especially for those who like
thrillers. But if you only want to see Snipes and Statham fight, or
you're looking for plain action, avoid it. There are no fights, and the
action is limited to a single chase, and some gunfights.
