Statham is simply Statham as we know him

"Well, I've been knocked down, blown up, lied to, sh*t on, and shot at. So nothing surprises me much anymore, except the things that people do to each other.I'm a licensed pilot, took karate in Tokyo.I lectured on economics at Yale.I can memorize the front pages of the New York Times in five minutes and repeat it back to you in five weeks.I was the National Golden Gloves champion three years in a row. I'm fluent in four languages and can wrestle with a menu in five more. Jesus! Don't interrupt me. There's more. More ? Yeah. I lie a lot. "

Wild Card Manages to Just Break Even

The words "Leading Man Jason Statham" is pretty much synonymous with "I will find a way to punch and/or kick myself out of this problem".

wild card - a loosing hand

Jason statham plays a bodyguard/gamberling addict in las vega, after a friend of his is attacked by some vegas mobsters he helps her in getting revenge but the mobsters then come after him. meanwhile he is hired but a nerdy guy who wants him to be some kind of mentor.
As a staham fan i hate to say it but this is probaby his weakest film to date. its a little different to his usual films its all just very weird and kind of arty direction wise. the nerdy character who hires him is all just to weird and makes little sence especialy the ending as you never once feel they even got to know eachother.
the girl who gets beaten up who he helps was good but she comes and goes all to soon staham actually doesn't do much or seems to want to help her which is all a little to odd.
after he helps ...
