A crime boss' son is killed after a bank job gone bad by a group of cops, revenge is exacted, but they tried to kill the wrong cop. This is more like it. After the disappointment of Hologram Man, PM redeem themselves with this full-on, if rather predictable, action flick. Gary Daniels is the wrong cop in question, and it really isn't a spoiler to say he loses it all so he can come back fighting. Yes, it's that predictable, no prizes for originality or a twisty plot, but PM does what it does best, solid action with high production values. It certainly felt like the sort of story where they were more concerned with maximising the "oh shit!" factor rather than delivering a believeable story, and frankly that's fine by me. For instance during a hectic and lengthy car chase near the beginning, all of a sudden the chased bank robber pulls out hand grenades - where did they come from? Who cares? It spiced things up nicely. Add in some really heavy-handed religious bollocks and the usual corrupt police insider and the stage is set for action all the way. Extended fight through a limo sunroof during a car chase? You got it! It's the sort of film that defies criticism almost because it exists in its own universe, it deoesn't appear to canibalise influences from other action films (although all the dual-wielding and gun-fetishism is very John Woo), it just does what it does and does it well. Perfect ending too. If you want something middle-brow exciting, you can't go wrong with this.
Oh you like the sound of it?
