    I liked it so well, I saw it 7 times..... I\'d see it again! Critics don\'t know anything about rating a movie....

    I asw the movie and I like it . T.I. was himself , Chris Brown was what I expected , Idris is a true actor & Paul Walker is too sexy for words. It wasn\'t the usual with \"oh the good guys win every time.\" It made you see with a purpose , even the best laid plans can go awry
