My brother trashed this one, so I watched anticipating the badness, but it just didn't come. Sure 50 Cent (playing Jonas) struggles to speak, but I thought he is a formiddable figure enough to forgive the lack of talent. The rest of the performances are pretty good, but I'm tired of watching the no-longer-interesting Robert De Niro. The character development is also of good quality, and was best expressed when Jonas' friends were shown around on their first day at work. The movie did feel rushed though, and I was actually hungry for more of the racist guy. The direction is very edgy, keeping me tense for a large portion of the movie. The storyline is also unusual, and the middle-aged lady totally edible.
