The story of a guy (Chris Evans as Ryan) who broke up with his girl friend allegedly accused of failing to act his age and on charges of being so self centered, childish, immature behavior, careless, blah blah blah and who suddenly turns out to be the man of the moment in a whole new ballgame of saving the life of an unknown person and her family from the hands of a few dirty cops. This shows how a man can convert his true self into actions with just-in-time bravery with an empathetic mind committed to risk even his own life to save the lives of unknown faces.

Jason Statham, a horse of a different color, performed the starring role of a dirty cop. Jason Statham abducts Jessica Martin, her kid, and her husband. She had no clues why they are being abducted. This covert abduction of Martin’s family is to snatch a video tape containing Jason’s heinous activities as a dirty cop.

She was then locked up inside an unknown house. She has nothing more than a shattered telephone and somehow manages to build a working phone from the scrap. This is how she seeks the help of Chris Evans (Ryan) through a random wrong number and the rest of the story is all about the do-or-die battle of Chris Evans with Jason Statham to secure the lives of the Martins. Chris Morgan, the screenplay writer should be the man behind the success of this one line story.

With all this thrill and suspense, one thing I like with this movie is the way the story’s foundation was laid by introducing Chris Evans as a guy who’s alleged of being self-centered by his girl friend and who later turned out to be the other way around :). Good movie. A suspense thriller worth enjoying.
