This was a 3.5/5 for me for much of the movie. The action is entertaining, (it's great to have an R rating when the violence in lots of these movies is unfortunately watered down), the movie never stands still for too long, it did well to make me empathise for Eloise (Phylicia Rashād) despite only having a few minutes on screen, Statham packs a punch, and most of the ensemble are great including Hutcherson. I would have liked to see Jeremy Irons have a bit more to do though. However, the way Adam Clay just avoids bullets and any damage from those who are trained to cause it, until the final disabled South African guy, (this was the best fight sequence), takes any possible realism out of it. It begins with Adam using stealth and taking out individuals who he easily could, but it becomes a little too much. Movies need to stop having highly trained military/law enforcement being unable to aim. At one point during the movie, another Beekeeper is assigned to kill Adam, but she does it in the most unsubtle and foolish way possible by ramming his car and shooting with the loudest gun possible rather than sneaking up to his stationary car and shooting him through the window. Some of the dialogue was average also and I wasn't a big fan of the Agent Matt Wiley character. His whole tone seemed off. Lastly, the other issue is that Adam takes out a lot of tactical police. At times he seems to try to spare their life, such as through aiming for their bullet-proof vest, but this seems to go out the window. Cyber hackers all deserve to die a painful death, but not if you kill hundreds of innocent people to get there. These actions make his comment at the end of the film about law vs justice invalid and means Adam isn't the likeable hero he should be. So, like many action movies, you do have to suspend belief, but I don't think it had to be so far-fetched and think it could have been better by tightening up some of the elements mentioned.
