Best part of story, including ending: I liked the story because it is a throwback to 80's action movies, it is essentially a no frills high-concept film with a good cast and great direction.

Best scene in story: When Gabriel is escaping from the feds on the highway, and a group of police officers setup a barricade. The drug lord and his forces get through the barricade the only way the know how: using deadly force.

Opinion about the main character: I like that he has a strong moral compass and uses his instincts to get through tough situations.
