Surprisingly Good!By Joe77 (9 reviews) from Wembley , 16 Jun 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]It's a good one. It may not be the most high- budget movie, and it may not be the best edited movie, but it does deliver better than most efforts seen lately, even in the big-budget category. Cuba may have a new career here as an Ice-T reminiscent bad-ass. Worth a matinée ticket.

shockingly poor... a disappointmentBy Vinnie_gb (6 reviews) from England , 27 Apr 2012This wasn't for me.
I felt that it started poorly, and compared to some other movies in the same genre, it seemed that the storyline lacked credibility. I guess the editing could have been better.
I am a huge fan of Cuba Gooding Jr, and his character in this was ace - I just wish the storyline and editing could have been better.
Worth a watch if nothing else is on! Glad it was free.By RockyCox (21 reviews) , 24 Apr 2012I really like Cuba Gooding Jnr and I am desperate for him to do decent films. But either he picks badly or he doesn't get offered them. maybe he's to well known for 'show me the money'. It's a shame. Boyz in the hood-top film. I think he would be good in a top American TV show, that route has worked well for other out of favour actors, it could get him back up there known as a good actor, and there's enough quality American TV shows about. As for this film, good idea but looked like it was done on a budget. Would have preferred the film if it went down the fight club route, and Gooding Jnr was a figmant of his imagination.
Chillingly realisticBy DrivingGenius (10 reviews) , 18 Apr 2012A excellent story. An innocent and playful conversation with a stranger in a bar turns into a nightmare from which there is seemingly no escape. Well worth the time to view.
The Hit ListBy entertainmentman (215 reviews) from South Croydon , 17 Apr 2012'' A good movie full of suspense with a decent storyline which was very simular to the film with Tom Cruise who played a hitman.''
Whatever happened to these guys?By mj55 (171 reviews) , 10 Apr 2012About as bad as I thought it would be. Biggest surprise was that Cuba was the bad guy and Cole the good guy. How could that be? I kept thinking it would have worked much better the other way round. Nevermind. This is a passable popcorn movie with sufficient guns and explosions to keep thing moving along fast enough to not bother the brain much. Little is really explained about Cuba's character's 'problem' - not that it matters. Dumb pitch results in pretty dumb movie. OK for a braindead night in.
