Writer/s Script Steven Knight
Director Steven Knight
Starring Jason Statham, Agata Buzek, Vicky McClure, Benedict Wong
Elevator Pitch A former soldier, suffering from PTSD and living on the street accidentally finds himself given the opportunity of taking on another man’s identity and luxurious lifestyle. He becomes an enforcer for a Chinese gang, supports a soup kitchen operated by an attractive young nun, and goes in search of the killer of a girl who was a friend when he was on the street.
Content Some martial arts, some scenes of people being drunk and living in boxes, a lot of interaction between the former soldier and the young nun. No nudity but some implied sex and a lot of alcohol consumption.
A View Within fifteen minutes of the start you can see which way this is going. A bit of a fairy story and we might wonder how it would have gone had the nun been less attractive, but it made 49% on Rotten Tomatoes which was not bad for a movie which has really gone straight to video – or as it goes today apparently – straight to VOD.
