    I have to say this was a 5 star movie in my book. I was expecting the typical Crank, Transporter, etc.. Movie from Jason Statham but i was pleasantly surprised. Yes the movie is violent as hell but the acting is superb and the story line line is believable. Rare these days.

    Maybe I'll watch it tonight if work slows down. I trust you Dawg. Hopefully you have better taste in movies than music.

    If you want to watch a very good movie, check-out Triangle. It's from 2009. Don't look up what it's about, or else it'll ruin it for you...trust me. Very freaky, and not a lot of blood/gore.

    You wil want to watch it a second time right away...and pay attention, or you'll get lost pretty quickly.

    I dug that movie too. I though James Franco was funny as hell as Gator. I'd watch that again. Some folks are snobby as hell when it comes to movies, I like the epics and the art house flicks too, but sometimes you can't beat a no-brainer, straight to dvd kick ass action movie.

    A little short, and likely uncircumcised, but the British accent and cocky attitude make up for it.

    It was good, but a bit contrived. Of the boxes and boxes of files in the house when Gator breaks in, he falls upon the one file in the one box that gets Statham in trouble, all within 30 seconds of searching? Meh...

    Again though, for a mindless action flick (especially if you're doing other work and watching in the background), it was fine, and well-worth the price of the DL.
