REDEMPTION

If Jason Statham in it, it's a sure bet I'll watch it. I think I've watched TRANSPORTER and the Guy Ritchie movies many, many times, so I was looking forward to REDEMPTION. The trailer made it look like another TRANSPORTER kind of move (featuring a scene of him driving a getaway car and pummeling bad guys), and while the story is somewhat similar, it's less comic-bookie (read less over-the-top). I didn't hate it, but didn't love it either. In fact, I don't even think I'd watch it again.

What's interesting, REDEMPTION is very close to the formula that's worked for him over and over again, but just misses the mark for me. Perhaps I was expecting too much due to the height of the bar that his other movies has set over the years. I hope this is just a fluke and he gets back to his kick-ass movie past.
