Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Eguide Dvds -

It has the star power and an in­trigu­ing based- on- areal- event story but this over­long ‘‘ killer vs killer’’ ac­tion flick set in the 1980s, doesn’t do enough with its as­sets to cat­a­pult it out of the B genre. It fol­lows Ja­son Statham’s ex- as­sas­sin who is forced out of re­tire­ment ( aren’t they al­ways?) to knock off a trio of spe­cial forces sol­diers who killed the sons of a rich sheikh. The cliches, Aussie act­ing cameos and dodgy ac­cents are plen­ti­ful but so are the nicely staged ac­tion scenes.

Ex­tras: ★ ★½ A mak­ing- of and deleted scenes.
