Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro (how manly is that?) star in this hyper-actionized tale of a conscience-plagued assassin (Statham) who guns his way out of retirement when his mentor (De Niro) is kidnapped. Eventually, a shadowy gang of government assassins (led by Clive Owen) comes looking to settle a score. The result? Lots of gunplay and explosions. The film occasionally reads like an '80s throwback, but the stars don't spend enough time together on screen to make the generic story worthwhile.105 minutes R.
