Picture
Jason Statham usually plays a hitman or a driver of some sorts on a massive rampage through many peoples faces and with a lot of anger. This movie puts "The Transporter" in the role of a hard-ass cop who's task in the film is to take down a cop-killing serial killer.

This British film flows well and feels good in all the right places but tends to gain a boring momentum towards the end of the film and ends with a classic turn of events that doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth. The cast is filled with distinctive characters and a few actors who have the goods and others who are uncomfortable to watch. Aiden Gillen, who plays Blitz, is a good example of a crazy character being portrayed correctly.

+ British Accents
+ Nice plot and solid delivery
- Lack of enthusiasm in acting and action
? Why is Jason Statham always wearing some sort of Cardigan or wool sweater in his recent movies?
