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.
