They should have named this movie SLOW PURSUIT. This is easily one of the slowest and boring movies I've seen in a long time. After this film was delivered to the studio, the editor should have been fired and someone else should have come in and cut another 30 minutes out of it.
This movie has no idea what it wants to be. It tries to be this tough drug war flick, but at the same time it tries to be a campy comedy. Because of that it fails miserably at both. There were times where I could tell that the director wanted me to laugh, but the content wasn't funny.
And then there is the bad guy. Ladies and gentlemen, Tom Bateman should have to write a letter of apology to anyone that pays to see this movie. His acting is so bad that I was literally cringing when he was on the screen.
The studio should take all of the copies of this movie and go dump them in a large pile of snow, then run them over with a snowplow, then throw them over a waterfall. (That last one will make sense if you are unlucky enough to have to see this movie). Save yourself the mental frostbite and skip this one.
