"I think when you watch the trailer, you're like, 'I'm stoked'. I'm like, 'Guns N' Roses, there's action, ah, Momoa's doing his thing'. But then you turn on the movie, and it's this slow burn. You're crying in the first 15 minutes going, 'Why the hell am I crying? I didn't sign up to watch this'."

The trailer sees Momoa as Ray Cooper running from the police, making his way to the top of a tall building surrounded by the feds. In another epic fight scene, he's protecting his daughter, shattering a train window and falling to the ground in the process. But he tells me this isn't just another Jason Momoa action thriller; it's a career-high for the actor.
