This may be Jason Statham’s worst flick yet. The convoluted plot involves corrupt NYC cops pitted against Chinese and Russian gangs. They’re all out to find a Chinese girl with a gift for numbers and Statham is the indomitable tough guy who decides to protect her.

Nothing about Statham, the stunts or the story is special.
