So, the story goes - Bishop (Jason Statham) kills an old friend because he's turned bad(as told by the bigger villain), and starts training his kid Steve(Ben Foster - by the way, this guy looks quite similar to Ryan Gosling, and I watched the film thinking it was him. And both of them were born 13 days apart only !) to become a mechanic like himself. Eventually, both of them avenge Steve's father, amidst some double crossing and dhishoom dhishoom.
The treatment and dialogue delivery was so insipid that I fell asleep once in between, and had to pinch myself to stay awake. For the most part one of the two protagonists is trying to kill somebody. There is one mildly interesting sequence where they go off to kill a seedy Guru and are hiding behind a wall. Now, since Statham has got extra brawn transplanted in exchange for his brain (this is my theory to explain why his films are so stupid), they quickly jump out and start shooting and firing practically all over the place. Neither are the Guns or cars anything to drool over, which is usually an attraction for such films targeted at all-male audiences. Statham drives a rundown truck for the most part, while repairing a sleek beauty throughout (which is taken out of the garage for 1 minute before being blown to pieces).
Not recommended for anybody with an IQ over 75. It's a remake of a 1972 film, and I am so put off I wont watch that one either.view less
