My rating: 6.5/10

Will I watch it again?  I think so.

I watched this on Netflix two and a half years ago and I'm slowly trying to catch up on my posting.  Jesus I'm so fucking behind.  Watching the trailer, a lot of it looks familiar.  I remember liking Chiklis in a bad guy role, Statham is fun as usual and I recall liking the movie but that's it.  It's no longer on Netflix so I've got nothing to jog my memory and it sucks.  I reckon someday I'll give it another shot.  Filming in New Orleans and coastal Florida is usually a plus.  Then, on the other hand, maybe because I don't remember much about it says something too.  Shitballs.
