A hit man wakes up abruptly only to learn that he has been injected with a lethal poison that will kill him unless he keeps up his heart rate extremely high. While doing so, mayhem, chaos and a whole lot of whoop ass incurs on the punks that did this. It goes without saying, he takes it personally and revenge follows.
First off, I have no idea were Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor came from. I mean these guys came out of nowhere. But for first time directors, they did pretty damn great! This movie was a great ride from start to finish. It was stylish, inventive, didnt hold anything back and, most importantly it was 100% pure adrenaline. It reminded me a lot like RUNNING SCARED with Paul Walker. Jason Statham's character wasnt much of big stretch from most of the roles he plays, but it doesnt matter cause it works for him. Ladies and gentlemen meet the new face of action! This guy does mostly all his own stunts. When you see him holding on for friggin life out of moving helicopter, thats really him. You really get the sense hes putting 110% in this movie. I dig that.
still on the fence about the ending. I would like to see a sequel, just see how
they can take it to the next level with all the crazy ass stunts. I dont know
if this movie is going to be a blockbuster, not enough marketing in my opinion.
But Im quite confident it will be one of those cult classics that will be
appreciated later on once it goes to
