So desperate is Brit muscle man Jason Statham to crack heads he’ll appear in just about anything, but of the man’s recent catalogue of action extravaganzas there’s been a few real stinkers. This one’s a middle- of- the- road belt ’ em up/ shoot ’ em up with Statham starring as ex-mixed- martial- arts fighter and cop who takes it upon himself to protect a young maths genius who has secrets about the triads that everyone including the Russian mafia and the police want. Over- worked at the front end and with a string of problems – plotting, acting etc – but it also delivers some energetic action pieces when it hits pace.
