Jake (Jason Statham) gets out after seven years in the slammer with a thirst for revenge against the man (Ray Liotta) who double crossed him. But he soon finds the plot for vengeance out of his hands and being led around by a couple of shady characters (Vincent Pastore and André Benjamin). The film starts off like another Guy Ritchie classic but it soon splutters into a bloody mess. The Guy Ritchie trademark slickness is still there but the plot is like a chutney of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, The Usual Suspects and Fight Club. Certain chemicals should never be mixed...
