If you're looking for an action movie about a father protecting his daughter this one fits the bill. But it fell a little flat. Admittedly, it did take a while to finish (I typically watch a little of a movie each morning before I go to work) because I never really had an urge to get back to it. Jason Statham is Jason Statham (which isn't bad if you like him, which I do) but James Franco did a really good job. Should you run right out and see this now? No. Fan of any of the aforementioned actors and/or looking for a basic action movie? Give it a try. At least it's free from the library :-)

Why did I watch the whole thing ... a waste. Very predictable and kind of stupid.

I'm not sure a film could be "stupider". (And for Follywood, that's really saying something.)
For those who won't make it past the first 10 min of this celluloid diarrhea masquerading as an entertaining film, no worries. You made the correct call. Not only does it get even more ridiculous & absurd with each passing minute, the intellectual level continually drops. (Yes, they said it couldn't be done, since it was already at rock bottom, but they managed it.)

I only made it 10 minutes into this movie - every other word was profanity, which really makes me sad that they cannot make a movie without that and it would be just as good, and also what's up with the weave on Jason Statham's head at the beginning of the movie - it looked SO fake!!!!!!!!

Pretty suspenseful thriller, but strange casting of Kate Bosworth as a methed-up Southern redneck tweeker and James Franco as her slimy brother. Not to mention Jason Statham trying to subdue his British accent-- to no avail. Sly Stallone doing the screenplay was actually the biggest surprise!

Better than most in this action genre. Jason Statham's films often have decent characters and stories.

Kind of an endurance watching. Too much profanity and kept hoping for it to build up to Jason Stathom's style . Just too predictable and flat .

Generic ex-undercover-agent-tries-to-move-on-but-his-past-catches-up-with-him-imperilling-his-little-kid tale, made vaguely interesting by some truly out-there casting. Stat ham kicks butt, like usual, but the story is absolute nonsense.

Jason Statham is very Jason Statham in the Jason Statham film. The story is just so so, with a lot of boring unrealistic side plots that Jason Statham has to deal with, which he does in his routinely Jason Statham way. The action is not very Jason Statham, for a Jason Statham movie, but that is not Jason Stathams fault, he does have much to work with. All in all Jason Statham should have passed on this film, cause his Jason Stathamness was wasted here.

No memorable lines, so this chat between Dad & kid is it:

Daughter: I've learned some cool
stuff in science class. Broker:
I don't believe that.
Daughter: Did you know that the trees
along the river, bald cypress, they can grow, like, 100 feet.
Broker: That is cool.
Daughter: But not as cool as snakes.
Broker: Snakes? Yeah.
Daughter: We've got moccasins'
copperheads, diamondbacks.
Broker: No King cobras, right?
Daughter: Dad' no, King cobras are like, from the far east somewhere.
Broker: That's a relief.
Daughter: Dad? Broker: Yeah?
Daughter: Why did we move out here? Broker: Why? Because there's
no King cobras.
