I thought this movie had it all. Action, humor, and a little bit of sexiness. I thought that they could have gone a different way for the ending, but it was still a unique idea.
One of the main reasons for my approval, was the fact that this movie was different. It’s not something that you see all the time in traditional “I have to claim revenge for what the bad guys did to me” type of film. I really liked the action sequences, I thought that this movie was choreographed really well. I didn’t find any glaring weaknesses in the film, but the overall storyline was a little lacking.
Jason Statham is an amazing actor (not just in this film specifically). He can do much more that play the action hero like in the Transporter movies, and this one as well. I really liked his performance in SNATCH. I thought that his character in SNATCH was really made for him, and that nobody else could have pulled it off. I’d like to see him in movies like that more often.
One more thing that I’d like to add, is that the new “Hitman Codname:47” movie that’s coming out would have been a really good role for Statham instead of Vin Diesel. Just a thought
