CRAZY WAITING TO HAPPEN
on December 21, 2013
Phil Broker (Jason Statham) is a former NARC who must now lay low due to getting the son of a crime boss killed. He is living in Louisiana which allows them to use a better soundtrack and crazy characters. His wife has passed on, he has a daughter Maddy (Izabela Vidovic) and a wanna be formulaic relationship with school counselor Susan Hatch(Rachelle Lefevre). He draws attention to himself while trying to live with a low profile, attention that endangers the life of both him and his daughter.
As art imitates life, James Franco plays the crazy bad guy and Winona Ryder his trashy girlfriend.
This is one of the better Statham films I have seen. It includes the usual tough guy talk, fighting, killings, chase scenes, and explosions. It also includes a colorful support cast with Kate Bosworth and Marcus Hester as realistic people. Bosworth was a pistol.
Worth seeing for fans of action films.
Parental Guide: F-bomb, garage sex, no nudity. Deals with meth manufacture and use.
