So, even though this opens in the U.S. and Canada tomorrow, I am embargoed from posting my review till next Monday, because the film doesn’t open here in the U.K. till next Friday, December 6th. But I’m gonna tell you right here that the movie is surprisingly not horrible, and has a few elements that are actually quite intriguing. Including a Jason Statham who continues to move away from mere thuggishness toward creating genuinely human characters (who still beat the shit outta people). If he keeps this up, he’s gonna end up being my boyfriend someday.
I know. I’m amazed as well.
