This has to have the grittiest chase scene I have ever seen: when they coast along the city streets, the shooter in the trunk, blazing a trail through the city, the biker hitting the windshield, her blood for a moment blocking the view as they run straight into that truck. That is one awesome scene. Brutal, random and tragic, but that's going to be a classic!
Terrence Howard is a great actor. In fact, they're all great actors apart from Arnold (he's growing old too! :(), but the final scene more than makes up for it. That final scene = awesome. Maybe the secret to having a good scene with Arnold is not using dialog, since it somehow always feels like he's stumbling on his lines, or exaggerating (strange that don't fit in in an American movie innit?), but the plot is gritty; brutal. At times I just feel the main characters are all a bunch of morons, but that's the first half of the movie. The second half makes up for it with much to spare, I just wish it had been that awesome all the way. It's a thriller, crime drama action flick with some real shock value, intense gunfights; mouthing off that with time all goes one step too far. Good watch.
