I was expecting great things from this film as I love watching Jason Statham. The action scenes were great and Mr Statham did not disappoint in this respect, but I was disappointed by the story line and the character played by James Franco. Francos' character, Gater Bodine, started off as an intimidating local drug lord but kind of fizzled out to be a bit of wimp by the end of the film in the light of an avenging gang hunting Stathams character "Broker". I like James Franco and his acting was good but I felt the script let him down. I am glad I watched it but it isn't among the classics in my opinion.
