Well what did you expect!!!By I Shot JR! from Plymouth, England , 14 May 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I won't hear any complaints by watchers of this film! Unless you were born yesterday, you know what to expect before you hire it, which is of course, no-brains action and knuckle-head machismo. But isn't that the point? Sometimes we need some testosterone-pumping drivel to watch and not have to think about. Well, it made me feel better anyway and if this film had turned out to be touching and sensitive I think I would be feeling pretty cheated right now! As it is, this bog-standard action movie, lacking in plot and substance (think Top Gun for the 'noughties' but not as good!), leaves me feeling recharged and ready to begin watching and appreciating some meaningful and hopefully original material again (at least until Paycheck or the next Jackie Chan movie!). These money-spinners will continue to be made and will continue to put (boys') bums on seats, maintaining the equilibrium currently threatened by the overwhelming amount of wishy-washy chick flicks available. Just watch and enjoy it for what it is or don't bother!

Thanks Mr FarrellBy gianino (618 reviews) from London , 17 Mar 2012Not much happening in the first hour so kinda flat and then it gets bit too crazy & then finally it picks up. Thanks G Colin Farell takes his top off few times: he is fit, hot & sexy :) Anyway, the movie is ok just a bit pointless at times & nuts at others. But it gets more interesting towards the end. Shame the Frenchy is quite a bad bad actor,
swat's the storyBy speedywheels (73 reviews) , 09 Jan 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I liked the action in the film and all actors played there parts well. I however felt that what was lacking in this film was a story, i mean how can the film start with a street gun battle, and swat getting called, with no build up or background story
I didnt see the twist coming in the middle, that was good, its a shame the story didn't support the action scenes in the film.
Watch it if you've nothing to do,
