Jason Statham gets to go a bit deeper while still in his typical mode in this action tale, which casts him as an ex-Special Forces operative who defends his fellow London homeless against attackers, then goes to work for a mobster.
He second-guesses the path he's on, though, because of the input he gets from the nun (Agata Buzek) he's helping to operate a soup kitchen. Screenwriter Steven Knight, who also scripted "Eastern Promises" and "Dirty Pretty Things,"makes his movie directing debut here. DVD extra: "making-of" documentary. *** (R: AS, N, P, GV) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
