Can You Match the Plot Description to the Jason Statham Movie? (The Answer is 'No')
See what I mean? Same song, slightly different lyrics. But no one watches Statham for the lyrics; we're in it for the power chords.
To demonstrate my point, I give you the title of 13 Jason Statham movie titles. Below, I provide the brief plot descriptions. How many plots can you match to the titles? (Note: In this game, as in life, there is no right answer. Only gaping plot holes).
