Awesome flick. Guy Pearce witty comments were outstanding. Cant wait for the sequile!!! 5stars
3.5 stars, i thought it was entertaining. having said that, it won't win any academy awards. i really liked the acting job of the nut job villain.
absurd plot, stupid ideas, but to be expected. still the cgi was interesting and some of the action was very good. a mid range renter.
guy pierce was surprising: he made a decent wisecracking us ex-agent.
i usually like guy pearce..but boy..this is probably the first movie that i want to walk out on and demand my money back. to boot..i watched it as a free preview!
this is a fun, classic 80's-throwback action flick. the movie makes no apologies for being what it is, and when watched though those eyes, is a 100% pure fun thrill ride. the bad guys are really bad, the good guys - well, they're kinda bad, too and the whole thing comes together as a movie that can be described as a guilty pleasure. i enjoyed it, and look forward to purchasing it on bluray!
i can only reiterate previous viewers comments.. the special effects were less than spectacular and the ending much too quick... this movie is at best, a home viewed movie on dvd and not worth the time at the theatre.
not sure if this was supposed to be a warped kind of comedy or serious action. way too many puns and such gets a bit irritating at times. special effects where so so at best. ie.. the scene on the motorcycle was horrible. and the other scenes at the beginning of the movie looks like they where done by an amateur
