The Aristocrat

[Simon West] goes for headshots, stabbings and other dispatches that are the antithesis of modern PG-13 action filmmaking.

Statham, he of the chiseled physique and sexily receding hairline, holds his own here, doing what he has to in scenes and no more -- which is perfect for a movie like this.

Statham has slowly become this generations' Bruce Willis, combining a quiet and sly screen persona with the ability to kick major ass when called upon

... a minor pleasure to see an action film that makes a virtue of lean, mean action stripped to the essence.

Jason Statham is quickly becoming the 21st century's Bruce Willis -- I am convinced that when the apocalypse comes, the only things left surviving on the planet will be cockroaches and this Derbyshire-born bloke.

It never pretends like it's going to be anything more or better than what you expect, and it never gives you anything less than totally entertaining gun blasting, car crashing and face smashing. Lots of it.

Statham has my respect for two reasons: 1) he's one of the few remaining action stars who isn't claiming his pension, and 2) he has yet to star in a Disney movie in which he must babysit projectile-vomiting children.

Statham convincingly breaks faces with effortless ease. It's as if he studied at The Lee Strasberg Institute of Badassery. He is the Stanislavski of neck-stomping.

The assassin gets a conscience in this fast-paced action thriller that offers a few interesting twists between its huge stunts,"

A serviceable, if brutal assassin action pic whose formula flaws are easy to overlook with Jason Statham and Ben Foster involved.

Statham is a model of control; he's steely and graceful in his action scenes, and his interplay with the wiry Foster delivers the goods.

Ramping up the action, and forsaking a bit of credibility, may seem like a cop-out, but it's an enjoyable one all the same, albeit, hardly groundbreaking as action films go.

takes a few moments for social commentary in the form of a zaftig cult leader with a weakness for double-fudge cake and 18-year-olds, but the point of the exercise is a rollicking good time

Exceedingly violent action remake also has sex, drinking.

Like the original, it is a moody, atmospheric film, one boasting significantly more depth than your typical blow-'em-up.
