Action, Crime drama, Thriller
All the principal figures involved in this generic action thriller seem like they're phoning it in: stars Jennifer Lopez and Jason Statham, screenwriter John J. McLaughlin (adapting a crime novel that Donald E. Westlake wrote under his pseudonym Richard Stark), and ever-bland director Taylor Hackford (An Officer and a Gentleman, The Devil's Advocate), who doesn't even bother to keep every shot in focus. Statham plays a career criminal taking revenge on four other crooks who scammed him and left him for dead; Lopez is the feisty real estate agent who improbably becomes his girl Friday. Much of the action takes place in luxury mansions and hotels in Palm Beach, Florida, creating the impression this was made as an excuse for the filmmakers to take a relaxing vacation. With Bobby Cannavale and Michael Chiklis.
