This was a rather weirdly laid out movie. Transitions and change of scenes were displayed out of order, and gave the film a strange disjointed feeling. This is probably the first Jason Statham movie that I haven't really enjoyed. It has the same fighting style that we have come to love, but the characters lacked credibility. None of the characters would have received more than 10 minutes of screentime (except for Jason Statham and Michael Angarano), so the film was filled with fleeting minor characters, and many irrelevant plot points.

While I did laugh at the beginning when Statham's character Nick was listing his "qualifications", and I enjoyed the "he can kill with any common object" theme, the script felt lazy and fell flat. There was no real plot, no real danger, and most exciting plot points were resolved without the promised conflict. I had nearly watched the entire film before I realised that I had no idea what the point of the movie was. I had no idea of the end goal, no idea whether this was film about gambling, or a film about organised crime.

The final battle was short, anticlimactic, and disappointing. This film did not live up to my expectations for a Jason Statham film. I hope he does not become the new Nicolas Cage.

Director: Tim Burton and Mike Johnson

Product image for Corpse BrideSet in a 19th century European village, this stop-motion, animated feature follows the story of Victor, a young man who is whisked away to the underworld and wed to a mysterious Corpse Bride, while his real bride, Victoria, waits bereft in the land of the living.

Though life in the Land of the Dead proves to be a lot more colourful than his strict Victorian upbringing, Victor learns that there is nothing in this world, or the next, that can keep him away from his one true love.
