An embarrassment on all levels.
Samuel L. Jackson - for shame!
I'm...I'm too tired to even waste breath on how bad this was. This is wannabe Guy Ritchie fare (who's only made one good movie - twice), every second word is 'fuck' for no reason than just to say it, um, let's see....oh yeah, a HILARIOUS (not) scene of Neo-Nazis shitting their pants, bad acting by everyone, the few scenes involving FX are high-school quality, unfeasible plot points, and a sense of pseudo-humour that just isn't funny. Need I mention stupid racial stereotyping? Why? WHY? What are people thinking signing up for this shit?
Oh, and you know you're in for a treat when the cast has a guy named 'The Lizard' played by Meatloaf. And the prologue has Sam Jackson playing a Tommy Chong-style hippie. Groovy man! I hate myself for watching this.

Is this that movie where he makes a concoction at the end of the movie that blows the bad guy up?

And very poorly done.
And you knew it was coming a mile away.
And it was Meatloaf who got blown up.
And Meatloaf's character was stupid.
And all the characters were stupid.
And I hated hated hated HATED this film.
