By sheer coincidence, I read the text on the back of the cover for this film, and after that I had to look at the front cover and the title.
It's a total different movie than all other Statham films...!!
Well, apart from lousy directing, and a terrible script, this was basically Jason Statham being a badass, and punching people. As in all the others.
Only this time it was boring.
The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films are not films, as I see it. They are an escape from reality, a place where I can let go of my concious self and just sit back and relax as my mind explore the wonderful world of Middle Earth. I will be forever grateful to Peter Jackson for that.
