    Diesel makes a violent bid to align himself with the Clint Eastwood-Charles Bronson-Steve McQueen tradition, but he lacks the charisma, emotional strength and humor to do so.

    There's not a single moment when you wonder what might happen next or when the spectacle simply leaps off the screen. You've seen it all before.
  3. A paint-by-numbers vigilante movie with the usual rogue cop, murdered wife and trail of vengeance.
  4. 40
    The film works best when it's sticking to the guns and poses conventions of macho crime pictures. When it reaches for emotional resonance, the results range from unconvincing to ludicrous.
  5. 38
    Violent and unoriginal actioner.
  6. Standard revenge shenanigans ensue, with more boo-hoo numbers from Vin, who ain't up to it -- he hasn't been this lame since, uh, ever.
  7. There's a huge subplot that makes absolutely no sense at all and, in the end, the only thing the movie has going for it is Diesel's Neanderthal charm.

    If movies were role models for a motherless and fatherless society lacking in too many ways to list, this would be a bad movie. Little JoeyIf movies were role models for a motherless and fatherless society lacking in too many ways to list, this would be a bad movie. Little Joey just wants to be superman. He wants your attention and admiration. He wants to be important and accepted. He is looking in all the wrong places so have a beer and peep into his private life for a little fun without getting your hands dirty at his expense. I have seen much worse but have seen better from VD. Cops and the government don't need any more encouragement to be in your business. Getting them out is the challenge if possible. I didn't fall asleep. I remember what happened. It brought me in and got me involved even if the story line is roughly familiar. Not much new here but not bad. Expand

    O Trailer Incrível!!!,o filme uma desgraça além disso Vin Diesel não tem muito carisma. História fraca porém elaborando bem o filme ficariaO Trailer Incrível!!!,o filme uma desgraça além disso Vin Diesel não tem muito carisma. História fraca porém elaborando bem o filme ficaria genial mas a elaboração e o desenvolvimento foram imbecis.
    A Única coisa que presta no filme é a mulher do Vin Diesel que é uma baita gostosa,mas para compensar ela morre no começo,e é coisa história que a merda começa
