Gibson at his Best! Action and slick comedyBy BBBlonde (18 reviews) , 02 Oct 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]If you like Payback you will love this, has a simpler story to it with just as much Action and seeing Gibson in a role like this is just pure class.......Get a beer and your popcorn and enjoy!

Best film Mel Gibson has done in yearsBy a customer , 02 Dec 2013From the start this film has you laughing. It's not a comedy but it is so funny. Action is there but it's not an action film. This really is the best thing he has done since Lethal Weapon or Mad Max 2. Fantastic film, loved it from beginning to end and everything in between!
OK action film.By Zebras22 (124 reviews) , 20 Nov 2013A decent film even though Mel Gibson is not a star anymore, and looking his age. Overall it it a decent action and shoot em up film. Worth a watch on a cold Sunday afternoon.
I wish I'd stayed on my summer vacation.By Arbiteroftaste (1 review) , 06 Oct 2013Let me start by saying that I'm pretty certain I didn't order this film. Something odd has happened, because I'm not a Mel Gibson fan, and quite honestly, this sort of film would never even get near my DVD player normally. L0ve FlLm say it couldn't happen, but it did. Now, to the film... what a surprise.. not! It was all I thought it would be, unbelievable, farcical, too obvious, and you knew the outcome within 15 minutes of the start. Mel Gibson awesome? No he isn't. He's a mediocre actor in a mediocre movie with a less than mediocre cast. At least L/F were nice enough to offer me a free film. Not one for top 1000 list I'm afraid.
Inventive, off-balance taleBy mj55 (176 reviews) , 30 Sep 2013Don't you love it when an 'outside the box' plan comes together? This film pretty much encapsulates that idea - you may not know what is coming next and what's going on in Gibson's character's mind but you know it'll be inventive. To an extent it harkens back to Gibson's Lethal Weapon days and is none the worse for that. Well filmed, good acting, witty script. Pretty good overall.
Gibson back to his BestBy hermitcrab (7 reviews) from Poole , 27 Sep 2013Mel Gibson back to his best, good original story line and i loved the Gibson narrative. One of the best films I have seen this year
