Review: In The Name of the King, or “Jason Statham Got to Get Paid, Son.” (Or more “Boll Crap”)

I remember when he was always all, Oscar hopeful and stuff… but now he seems content to simply solve Encyclopedia Brownian-type mysteries and look a lot like Neil Diamond (Reference). However, all kidding aside, he returns to us in the hugely successful sequel to the hugely successful National Treasure. This time involving, a secretive Book of Secrets.
