Pure, unadulterated action. If you love action movies, you have to watch this one. As soon as it starts, it progresses like a 100m race, only stretched longer.
Jason Statham fits perfectly in the role of Chev Chelios, a trigger happy gangster. At the beginning of the movie, he gets injected by a lethal chinese cocktail. This creates a queer condition in his body, which would cause him to die if his heart beat slows down (ala Speed). To avoid this, he has to keep his adrenaline flowing constantly, in the process going on a rampage in the entire city. Remember “kill frenzy” from GTA 2? Yeah…that and more!
