    Nonsensical plot, great action scenes.
    As usual, Statham is the ace of the whole movie. His action scenes are good, have power in them. Although, his performance just above average, not really "shinning".

    The plot is quite silly, the lines and also the choices of all characters made me question myself multiple times: "How can they be that stupid?". Especially Verona. She is both stupid and braindead. She could make some much better choices but she refused to do it. She angrily wanted to seek for revenge but ended up protect for her enemy. Why?

    Also the scamming center scene are so bad too. It makes me wonder if all my knowledge in IT are really that accurate. They treated the information and scamming center like a gameshow. Who would do it?

    The plot is quite easy to guest. The bad guys' force are many but too weak for our "good guy". The main character got buffed too much and too strong.

    It's a decent entertaining movie and fun to watch as long as you don't mind the braindead script, character and their lines. I give Statham alone 7/10 and the plot 2/10.

    Simple story and well-produced fight scenes.
    The movie features a simple story and exceptionally well-produced fight scenes. For those moments when you just want to kick back and watch something without overthinking and crave pure action, this film is an excellent choice. It has a John Wick-style vibe that is sure to satisfy action enthusiasts. Jason Statham delivers a strong performance, reminiscent of his glory days in the Transporter series. Over the years, Jason has been in numerous action films, but sadly, many were poorly produced and infused with an awkward comedic tone, reducing his character to a lunatic or a clown. In this film, however, Jason returns to the type of role that originally made him a star in the action genre. He embodies the tough, no-nonsense hero with finesse and intensity, bringing back the thrill and grit that fans love. The choreography of the fight scenes is top-notch, and the pacing of the story keeps you engaged from start to finish. It's refreshing to see Jason in a role that does justice to his action-hero persona, without the unnecessary comedy that has plagued some of his recent works. This film is a testament to why Jason Statham remains a beloved figure in the world of action movies, delivering exactly what fans expect and more. For those seeking high-octane action and a return to classic Statham style, this movie is a must-watch.

    Yeah, Sure, Okay
    Proof Statham knows how to fight - Otherwise a tacky "Equaliser" "John Wick" film with lame supporting characters and uninteresting bad guys. That said Jeremy Irons is always a plus.

    Was hoping it would have the same charm that "Nobody" with Odenkirk had. It didn't. Not saying don't watch it. I Would watch at the dentist if I hadn't already seen it but know what I know now. Hindsight is 20/20. Wouldn't watch it on a plane.

    If it was up to me I would replace the police detective with Rosamund Pike and the bad guy with Simon Pegg. Double down on the British angle. Try to keep Guy Ritchie as far away as possible.

    5/10 - Right time and place kind of movie.
