Metascore (Critics) Rating 3.5/10 (Between 2-6.3/10)
IMDB Rating 4.9/10
Overly generic. 3/10
4.9? Is there some reason everyone hates this? 7/10
a genre movie is fairly formulaic, with little to distinguish it from similar films, but it's also fairly well-done 5/10
Slow and predictable . disappointed 4/10
Worth watching 7/10
There is nothing new here but there have been many movies with a bigger budget with a similar idea that didn't at least entertain.
This does, very simple nothing clever, possibly sanitizes gangsters and killing too much but its a movie with characters at least you can care about.
Good sort of good guys vs bad guys entertainment.
MGN rating 6.5/10
