[ No spoilers ] I was really looking forward to this movie. And while I’m not hugely disappointed I’m also not exactly thrilled with it either. I guess the good news is that it’s a decent movie because it could have really sucked. But with the talented combination of Travolta acting and Luc Besson writing there’s only so bad it could get.

Getting peetimes for this movie wasn’t easy. That’s because there’s a bit of a mystery going on during the middle of the movie as Wax and James try to figure out who’s running the show. I kept having a feeling that this could be important later. Ultimately it wasn’t that big of a deal. If you’re going to see this movie for the plot then you’re probably going to be very disappointed.

The action was average. Lots of Wax – Travolta – shooting dozens of people while never getting a scratch on him. That’s as good as it gets. Wax does have a few good lines here and there but nothing iconic. Well, just one line that is a reuse of an iconic line he delivered in Pulp Fiction. You’ll like that moment.

The other guy – Jonathan Rhys Meyers – as James was decent. Nothing award winning but then it’s not that kind of movie.

It does seem that they were trying to set this up as a franchise, as the two desperate characters work well together as a team, blah, blah, blah. But I doubt if this is going to have the popularity it will need to bring on a sequel. Because in the end it’s just an average action movie.

One tiny little thing that bothers me is the movie poster. It didn’t happen in the movie that way. Not that it’s important, but James isn’t driving when Wax is shooting the rocket launcher. And besides that, Wax doesn’t even shoot the rocket launcher from the car. What movie were these guys watching when they made this poster? 🙂
