The Stath has a lot to save...

There’s a lot that doesn’t make sense in Gary Fleder’s clammy beat ’em up – not least a plot that sees widowed former DEA agent Phil Broker (Jason Statham) take his young daughter (Izabela Vidovic) to a crime-ridden Louisiana backwater to protect her from a botched drug bust in the big city.

Why is the hard-ass meth kingpin played by James Franco? Why did Kate Bosworth and Winona Ryder lose weight to play white-trash junkies for this? When will The Stath come to his senses and realise he just can’t do accents?

And why did Sylvester Stallone write the script 10 years ago but never bother to film it himself? Well, that’s actually an easy one...

      Solid and entertaining action thriller. Was Statham doing an accent? Didn't seem like it.
