Box Office Details
The highlight of this film is Kevin Bacon's accent. He plays 'Jimmy the
Brit' just so everyone knows he's supposed to be British (not an
Aussie). His accent is a cross between Jason Statham and Dick Van Dyke
with a good dollop of Ramsey-esque swearing thrown in.
Djimon Hounsou plays 'Curtie Church' (seriously) a troubled, spiritual
mercenary with a conscience (Steven Seagal must have been unavailable).
He has little to do in the film apart from shooting, slicing and
generally rolling around an ever increasing number of bad guys.
The characters are all stereotypical, the script is lazy ("You're dark,
and I don't mean your skin tone…") and the action scenes are bland,
boring and forgettable.
