"Hilarious, over-the-top action"
5 stars"

As simply as I can put it, it's like The Transporter 2 meets Children of Men, except it isn't a great movie like Children of Men, nowhere near it; the only thing it has in common is that Clive Owen delivers a baby and has to protect it.

In every other sense it's like The Transporter 2 – ridiculous, over-the-top action scenes, impossible superhero-like feats of agility and accuracy, plus exceedingly wreckless endangerment of a newborn child, topped off with corny one-liners and Monica Belucci as a sex object. All in all, a very manly movie, fully aware of its purpose – this isn't high drama, this isn't a deep psychological thriller, but no-holds-barred cinematic entertainment.

Forget about the plot, it doesn't matter. Forget about the characters, they might as well just be stuntmen, but Clive Owen and Paul Giamatti add some heavyweight star power and never for a second take the film too seriously (and neither should you). While you're at it, forget about the laws of physics altogether.

Just turn off your brain, and enjoy the ride.
