My rating: 5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Wow.  I think this might be the first Jason Statham movie I've seen that I definitely won't watch again.  Statham is being Statham and that's fine with me.  Li, though, is rather dull and the cat-and-mouse game between the two didn't grab my attention.  I was bored.  It didn't help that the movie gets close enough to two hours to make it painful to finish.  Woof.
