Movie Review by Zara
March 14th, 2007

Decent action flick

A robbery gone bad, a bunch of guys who work together eventually turning on one another and Mark Wahlberg at his snarling best/worst.

The highlight of this mostly forgettable flick is Lou Diamond Phillips as the bad guy of the group. He chews scenary and spits his lines with delight, showcasing how he manages to take the role both seriously and tongue in cheek at the same time, making it infinitely more watchable.

I also want to point out how much fun an adult Christina Applegate is. As the harping girlfriend to Wahlberg, she displays her fantastic timing, honed during her years as Kelly Bundy. I think she gets far too little respect for being the professional and dependable actress that she is. Some women might be more beautiful, some might be more sexy and some might even have better acting chops. But there's something to be said about the "go-to" girls of the business. Without them, there's no mortar. Applegate is great mortar.
