Critic Review

The film got a good response from the audiences and a mixed response from the critics. The cinema blend stated “Forgive me if I get a little turned around with the Jason Statham canon. There’s The Transporter, Crank, and the Mechanic Series. As far as I’m concerned, these could do all the same set of films.

I don’t see too many distinguishable features. Don’t get me wrong; it’s fine, they all look like a ton of fun”. So some found it real thrill and some found it a usual Bond type film.

Final Verdict

Jason Statham did a great job in the film although he also could not sail the ship. With a messy narration and pacing, the direction made it a bit predictive with no twists and a simple plot. The first half is good but the second half is messy due to low-quality cinematic effects, but that’s a technical part. The film got an R rating due violence and rough language.

Overall if you love action movies and Jason Statham brand action, then you will love it. So, Hollywood has an action, thriller and suspense for you this week. A good movie for the weekend! Go through our entertainment section for more Hollywood movie reviews.
