Storyline

Reeling from a traumatic tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joey (Jason Statham), an ex-Special Forces soldier, returns to London to face another kind of war: life on the streets as a damaged, homeless veteran. In an attempt to rehabilitate himself, Joey assumes another man’s identity and seeks the aid of Sister Cristina (Agata Buzek), a young nun who works at an inner-city parish. But Joey’s expert training as a soldier marks him as a valuable asset, and he soon finds himself caught in the dark web of London’s criminal underworld. Struggling to keep hold of his integrity, Joey offers his profits to those who need it most. But when he learns his missing girlfriend was brutally murdered by a ruthless kingpin, he risks everything for bloody revenge, hurtling down a deadly path that promises to destroy him completely...or be his last and only hope at redemption.

Trivia

2013 Guide Analysis: "The least known of the three Jason Statham-led projects in 2013, this one entirely centers on the Brit and features a cast that most will not have heard of, aside from maybe Benedict Wong. What's most exciting is that acclaimed scribe Steven Knight ("Eastern Promises," "Dirty Pretty Things") makes his directorial debut on the film, which follows an ex-special services soldier turned upper class criminal who hunts down the men who killed his girlfriend. Shot in and around London, Statham was seen filming some intense fights in the streets of Soho. Could this stripped down revenge flick end up being the best of the three Statham films?"
