Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) plays a human punchbag in this vicious and unpleasant action film about a London motorcycle courier caught up in a plot to kill the key witness in the trial of a US racketeer. Conveniently, Kurylenko's character turns out to be ex-Ukrainian military, so she's patently used to having seven bells repeatedly bashed out of her. The fight scenes involving gun-toting goons in a sealed-off underground car park are brutal but nothing special, while the acting and dialogue are similarly below par. Gary Oldman and Dermot Mulroney provide support, though neither, one suspects, will rate this as a career highlight.
