He overacts so badly. He seems to want to be taken really seriously, but come on.

I too agree the ending sucked...I thought the ending should've went like this...

You see the bomb explodes in his cell and and all the fire and explosion goes off but,there was a another tunnel he could escape into which a mastermind would plan and there were secondary explosives which go off at city hall and kills everyone there ..and then cut to Jaime Foxx who thinks he's dead and then when they cut away to his daughter's recital and they're watching her play as soon as she finished the last note, his daughter and the cello explodes everyone is screaming and commotion ensues..Jaime foxx stands up scanning the whole room and he looks up to the front entrance by the door and sees Gerard Butler who gives him a kind wave as he walks out the door through all the smoke and debris....

roll credits.... = epic movie

This movie really had me going for awhile too. The commercial really hyped it up. How was this guy getting people killed from behind bars??

**SPOLIER ALERT**

But I couldn't believe that in the end, he was just simple sneaking out of his cell from a maximum security prison. Nuthon but a thang to Butler. Maybe I'm diggin to deep, but I just can't take that scenario seriously. The guy has murdered a couple while he's supposed to be in solitary confinement, and not one genious thought of putting him under 24-hour surveillance lol.

**Spolier**

absolutely- anything but that shyt they went with- the film was so concerned with having a really false moral resolution- that was what prevented it from being a decent bit of fun. jamie fox couldnt kill butler- he had to do it himself because fox was good, that sickened me. a mindless piece of trash like this lower itself even more with its final scrape at morality.

Yeah exactly. I agree with others in the sense that it could've ended with him escaping and walking free since he was such a genius. But at the same time, the dude had a death wish. He obviously wasn't happy with his life and felt there was nothing left to live for. So while they could've made a better ending, it did kind of make sense.
