||A book of the same name by Chuck Logan
||Written by Sylvester Stallone years ago and shelved because he got too old to act in it himself, until picked up, apparenty, by Jason Statham.
||Jason Statham, James Franco, Kate Bosworth, Winona Ryder, Frank Grillo
||An undercover cop retires with his daughter to a small town in Louisiana after his cover is blown when he is instrumental in the winding up of a massive drug operation. An accidental series of events reveal his origins and make him a target for the local hard men, and his original enemies.
||Louisiana photographs well as a background to numerous fights involving martial arts, pistols and machine guns. Some car, motor bike and boat chases. Several explosions. One sex scene – from a distance. Drugs feature strongly and people drink beer.
||A pretty standard Sylvester Stallone, or as it turned out, Jason Statham vehicle, pretty gritty at times. Watchable I thought, even though the critics did not like it much. If you are a JS fan you will know what to expect.
