A big revision of the Sam Peckinpah-directed 1975 James Caan-Robert Duvall melodrama, this update doesn't shortchange on action ... especially since it's been retooled for "Transporter" staple Jason Statham.
He plays a Special Ops veteran who must rescue his mentor (Robert De Niro) from an equally skilled nemesis (Clive Owen) and several other enemies well trained in lethal methods. Yvonne Strahovski ("Chuck") and Dominic Purcell ("Prison Break") also are featured. DVD extras: deleted and extended scenes. *** (R: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
