I really do not know what to say about this film. It is directed by the writer of the Resident Evil series, Paul W.S. Anderson, who first gained notoriety by directed the ultra-violent similar Shopping in 1994 (he also wrote), starring Jude Law and Sean Pertwee in a story about thieves who steal by ramming a car into storefronts. The film was banned in some cinemas in England, and became a direct-to-video slightly edited release in the United States. On second thought Anderson may have been the best person for this film.
Jason Statham fans have high hopes on this one. Interesting too, is that Roger Corman and Tom Cruise are producers with Joan Allen, no less, as co-star! What an ensemble.
