Rotten: There's clearly supposed to be tension between Joey's good and bad sides. Sure, he's a mobster, but he's also a family man, which makes him... gray. (Not black and white = very sophisticated.)

Fresh: The end result of all these cross-mob confrontations is an orgy of nihilistic violence that is curiously exhilarating, I am almost ashamed to say.

Paul Walker will never make into my favourite actors list, but he does pretty well for himself in this film. With its forced visual effects and ambitions to be stylish, however, it comes off as a rather pretentious production. Action-wise, it's quite exciting though. There's certainly no shortage of adrenaline and the plot is interesting to follow. An added bonus is we get treated to Vera Farmiga's sexy behind. Those godess-like buns sure kept my attention. Anyhow, before I drift off the subject here, this was a solidly made crime flick. A bit contrived as mentioned, but entertaining either way.
