The car chases are the real MVP

DeNiro and Reno...what more do you want? How about Sean Bean? Still want more? There are more interesting actors in this film and it is all entertaining, but the four stars really is for the car chases, which are the true stars of this film. The story is nice and convoluted and there are alliances and international incidents and DeNiro DeNiro-ing it everywhere and that is a lot of fun, but ultimately everyone is upstaged by some believable car chases that are top notch.
