Joseph was a veteran who went missing during his mission in Afghanistan. he hid in London, living as a homeless drunk. he broke into an apartment that its owner went for travelling for months. he began living a life assuming that he was its owner, calling himself Joey. with the credit card he found, he began improving himself. he got to know Cristina, a nun who ran the soup kitchen, and his fighting ability got his hired by a Chinese mafia, where everyone started calling him Crazy Joe.
considering having Jason Statham in its center, it was a surprise that the film didn't come out impressive. fortunately, there were plenty of character developments. the romance Joey had with the nun was somewhat strange and difficult to appreciate. but for a cheaper version of a person that he portrayed, i supposed it was perhaps expected? anyway, action wise, the film was loaded with plenty of fights. if one doesn't mind a godly version of Joey, the film was a huge success and could be highly entertaining.
