This was a real surprise. I've always liked Jason Statham but this was a real departure from his usual action shenanigans in the likes of The Transporter (letterboxd.com/film/the-transporter/), Crank (letterboxd.com/film/crank/) & Safe (letterboxd.com/film/safe-2012-3/).
That's not to say that there was a fairly decent amount of action in this film but in terms of real acting ability Statham certainly upped his game with this one, even more so than The Mechanic (letterboxd.com/film/the-mechanic-2011/) which I still think is his best action movie to…
OK so this isn't the best nazi-horror film ever made but it does have some very good performances, notably from Johnny Meres as the 'breather'.
Probably the scariest thing about this movie though was that a couple of days after watching it I saw Jonny Meres walking through my office - now THAT scared the **** out of me. (I did make a point of talking to him though and he's a thoroughly decent chap)
