Didn't see any forum on it here. Anyone see the movie? It's a mindless bit of tripe but it did make me stop and think about my priorities.

I was intrigued purely because of the Jason Statham factor, but never got around to seeing it.

:spoilers:

It's similar to the Transporter movies but less serious. The Transporter movies seem to have a more serious note on the scale of a James Bond movie--even Casino Royale. However, it seems that the "energy level" is overkill but of course the movie has to be like this. You might as well watch some sort of video game because with all the different camera angles and shots it seems as if you're meant to be on this little joy ride with Stratham. It's like the Energizer bunny on speed only the Energizer Bunny is less frivolous.

One reviewer pointed out that the movie is full of racism and makes the women "an assortment of bimbos, strippers and whores with the exception of Smart's Eve and even she's reduced to being Chev's sexual plaything in short order" (he has VERY PUBLIC sex with her).

Though it is too sardonic to have any real tension, I did wonder by the end of the movie what I would do if I knew I only had an hour, a day or a month to live. Would I seek revenge on my enemies or would I forgive them? Would I seriously rightly relate with others, including God, or would my life be filled with the drivel and nonsense that pervades the last hour of Chelios' life?
