The title may not sing, but you have to say the cast is intriguing. Few young actors have grabbed moviegoers’ attention as effectively as Colin Farrell (“Minority Report,” “Phone Booth,” Us Weekly) and Olivier Martinez (“Unfaithful”) did in the past year. Add the perennially powerful Samuel L. Jackson, “The Fast and the Furious’ ” Michelle Rodriguez and LL Cool J, and you hope this promising crew has a good script. Contributors to this one include “Training Day’s” prolific David Ayer.
