Trivia

2011 Guide Analysis: "A straight forward action thriller for Statham and filmmaker Boaz Yakin ("Uptown Girls," "Remember the Titans"), set reports indicate a fast-paced "The Transporter" style effort minus the flash car and tongue-in-cheek style. The trouble with these more sober "Kiss of the Dragon"-style films is the lack of distinctiveness or originality, certainly Statham has two other action films due out this year ("Blitz," "The Killer Elite") which both look far more interesting thanks to stronger casts and period settings with better premises. Right now, nothing heard or seen about this makes it sound anything more than direct-to-DVD nonsense."
