... WOW. And I thought Divergent was dumb. But that movie has NOTHING on the sheer level of idiocy on display here. Now, to be fair to the overly and unintentionally goofy action sequences, the fact that I'm seeing this thing right after The Raid 2 really is a major disservice to it. But I was willing to forgive all that and take this in as just a dumb, fun action flick, until this thing veers WAY off course with the climax in which a freaking drug lord has a completely random and out of nowhere change of heart, and is all of a sudden one of the good guys along with all his thugs, to the point that he's even running for mayor by the end of things, and the straight laced cop Paul Walker even shows his support for this stone cold blooded murderer, driving around and waving at all these awful thugs in the end like they were supposed to be decent people this whole time? What? What?!. I swear there isn't a brain cell to be had in this thing, and I fear I may have lost many myself after sitting through it, as I was left unable to even think clearly after being subjected to such an unfathomably stupid movie. Just... man...

The respects paid to Paul Walker just before the credits roll was actually almost disrespectful coming after a movie such as this...
