The Fred Flintstone of the narcotics interdiction biz

"Diesel is one of those less-than-meets-the-eye actors who goes increasingly out of focus the more the camera fixates on him. Armed with muddy enunciation and a dull glare that bespeaks badass catalepsy, he doesn't seem capable of more than two levels: sulk and smash. He's supposed to come off as the Fred Flintstone of the narcotics interdiction biz, an average Joe Widower whose undercover work seemingly necessitates close proximity to strippers (all lovingly photographed) -- but who bristles when a girl offers him a lap dance."
