Wild Card (2015)

Not the worst thing I have ever seen, but Statham has made far better.

A Statham action flick with a small amount of action and a patchwork plot that makes for a mediocre romp through Vegas with an unsatisfying ending. I mistook the various plot holes throughout the film for possible exciting clues to the main character’s backstory or foreshadowed twists, but it was neither - just bad writing. I did enjoy the action in the few moments it appeared, the Vegas at Christmas setting, and the typical Statham swagger and charm. But the random nudity, pointless gambling scenes, and the unnecessary side character that illogically provides resolution to the film all reduce the awesome standard Statham action film to a haphazard mess. The list of better Statham movies is long.
