Statham's fans will not be disappointed!
A word of advice: If you’re picking the wrong fight, at least pick the right weapon.
Jason Statham is a bad tempered London policeman whose methods are sometimes somewhat politically unacceptable. There is a demented serial killer who is killing police officers, and Statham is part of the task force hunting him down (when he is not doling out street justice with a hockey stick). Paddy Considine is the homosexual detective who partners up with Statham and a very beautiful Zawe Ashton hits the right dramatic notes as drug addicted rookie cop Elizabeth Falls.
If you are expecting Crank, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, or The Transporter, stay away but if you’re in the mood for a gritty, no-take-prisoners crime thriller then this one might be right up your alley.
