Time Comment
6:35 I don’t see him as a fisherman. Although he does have huge amounts of patience.
9:35 “Your speech for tomorrow.” “Any good?” “It’s going to piss off a lot of people.”
12:54 I love, love, love the way Statham looks at fingers or hands when they touch him.
16:59 A car crashes into his house, then the ambulance explodes. Very suspicious.
21:25 It’s like Speed but a being trapped in a car version.
31:28 “We’re 100km from beer and sausage.”
36:37 She just settles in to watch the carnage, like the rest of us.
44:14 I don’t know how far 25/50/75 feet is but this is so stressful.
49:54 Bit awkward, the whole Ukraine/Russia confusion here.
54:39 Gloomy Doomy.
1:07:15 Oh, the daughter. The plot is starting to come together.
1:10:28 “Of course I don’t know you. I talk about feelings, not knowing.”
1:23:14 Welp, James Bond never floated a car to the surface and got towed out by a Ukranian tractor.
1:32:55 Weird job interview section at the end here.

Thoughts

I enjoyed this one a lot better than the previous one, but it’s still just mindless Jason Statham doing martial arts sequences and driving fast. Pretty mindless and some moments where you just have to suspend your disbelief (why would the villain choose to explode rather than fall out of the train with the car?) but ultimately a fun finish to the original trilogy.

Rating: 3 / 5
