Unbearably boring from its opening scene, this film is a must-see for fanatics of meaningless violence and general idiocy. is once again stone-faced in an attempt to retain a serious reputation while whoring himself out for cash in big-budget entertainment. He plays a mysterious gunman who saves a pregnant woman from assassins, loses her while birthing her child, then becomes the baby’s protector after the lead gunman () comes after it as well. Owen places the baby in the care of a prostitute () while attempting to not only go after the killers but find out the reason why the baby is wanted dead in the first place. Charmless characters, dull performances (especially Giamatti, who is really getting ridiculously full of himself) and non-stop gun play make for an experience that will give you a splitting headache within the first fifteen minutes.
