Well, i just watched it tonite. And do u wanna know about my opinion? It was a comedy-actions movie. I didn't know i just felt like this. Lawrence Fishburn felt like just wasted time in this movie. But Paul Walker i think he's fine here.
Yah, u will not believe, that it has a very funny ending. I didn't even expect!
