An average movie

To be honest, I didn't expect much from the damned thing but since it was broadcasted on one of my TV channels, I thought I might as well check it out. Basically, at the beginning of the 2000's, following 'Pitch Black', 'The Fast and the Furious' and 'xXx', Vin Diesel was heralded as the next big action movie star. Well, fast-forward a decade later and we can say that Vin Diesel never really managed to reach this status after all. I mean, after a string of decent box-office successes, this movie was in fact his first flop. Basically, the whole thing tried to be some kind of throwback to those macho action movies from the 80's and I have to admit that the directing was not bad, with a rather gritty and stylish look. The action scenes were also decent but nothing really impressive though and, eventually, I can't say I really enjoyed the damned thing. I mean, Vin Diesel was quite charismatic and he had the potential to be badass but the story was just really weak and even rather boring. Furthermore, they tried to add a stupid twist at the end but it made the whole thing even more non-sensical. Basically, the plot-holes were just so huge that a train could pass through them. To conclude, it was an average action flick and I don’t think it is really worth a look, only maybe if you are a huge fan of the genre.
