Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Christopher Walken, Al Pacino... and a very underrated film.

Ben Affleck is a killer, doing various dirty jobs for criminals, but this time he's assigned with a partner, Jennifer Lopez.

This film deserves way more positive reviews than it has. The characters are fun to be with, and there's some great cinematography. Also, it's quite funny and really does hold your interest throughout. On the downside, it is a little predictable, but that is only a very minor quibble. I had low expectations because of the negative reviews and they were very happily exceeded. Being a crime romance, there isn't a lot of crime perpetrated, which leaves time for the characters to develop and a relationship to grow. A very good film.

This is the same story from the previous two films, just located in Las Vegas where the underground gambling circuit is still torturing people for money.

Compared to the two first films this goes light on the gore, with even the torture scenes not containing that much. The violence is much more cut away from than the previous instalments. It's still quite interesting, though, and does hold your attention through to the end. It also offers some shocks from the torture, with the first scene being the main stand-out, and also the most graphic. It does have that straight-to-DVD feel, but it's still alright.
