Yeah, yeah. I know. Not Oscar-worthy material by any stretch, but for any Jason Statham fans out there, he beat the fu*k out of these two guys in the movie so bad, I actually rewound it 3 times. Awesome.

I can't watch his crappy movies because I can't stand his lousy American accent. I will never understand why they even make him bother trying to sound American..

Simon, I agree. But in this one, they didn't even bother with his accent.

It was like "just kick ass, your supposed to be an American, but who cares?"

Rivals some of the Segal movies from the late 80's/early 90's, IMO.

Like I said, no Oscar here. Just Whoop-ass!

What does "American accent" sound like? Would that be southern American, western American, or eastern American, or northeastern American, or African American, or Asian American, or Mexican Americans, or recent European immigrant American, or ...?

Well, you get the idea. They (we) all have distinctive accents.

Whoa, man. Look before you leap. LowUFO literally speaks the Queens' English. He knows of what he speaks.

I didn't mean to leap here. My point wasn't trying to argue the fact that Statham has an accent, lousy or not. Just that: What does an "American accent" sound like? We are far too varied a people to generalize.

I'm with ya, man. Simon's point was that, some directors try to make him sound "American" when his deep London-based accent cannot be overcome. (Think Arnold in Predator). To Simon, (and myself) it just seems "crappy".

Let the guy roll on with his accent (like Arnold), and just kick some ass.

Hope you understand, CN.
