Normally a film where everyone acts like a dick isn't much fun. However in this one all the characters act like a dick but have free reign to tell each other just how much of a dick everyone else is, all whilst fannying around over starting a war.

Crazed visual diarrhoea about two girls having a stilted phone conversation with each other whilst one is chased by a lady with a giant pair of scissors and the other is fending off the unwanted attentions of an obsessed cult who are quite keen on cutting her legs off with an axe.

These days it's quite the rarity to find a genuine piece of action cinema rather than the CGI cartoons passed off as such, almost as though John Woo and Luc Besson had a meeting in the nineties and planned this whole thing out.
Even more of a rarity is finding such an action film displaying genuine wit, invention and complexity in both its photography and plotting.
Most stunning of all though is the decision to make Statham speak with an American accent, what fucking idiot thought that through? They may as well have insisted he gargle marbles for the entire film, his dialogue would've been just as clear.

In this story based on true events nothing McAvoy's character does rings true.
After the film I discovered this is because his character is fictional and the only thing based on true events is Whitaker's superb performance thus rendering the film nothing more than a ropey thriller acting as a platform for some serious scenery chewing.
