Speaking as an English former sixth form student: painfully, hilariously and very true to life.
Starts like Carpenter, ends like Bruckheimer, with wrist mounted deus ex machina. Bad? No: Unspectacular.
Breathtaking, balletic action… but everything else is utter gibberish, seemingly treating you with contempt.
I swear Luke Goss was never this awesome back in the day. Tekken? It’s okay.
Some films are exactly the sum of their parts. This is one of those times.
A decent story, but lacks coherence and subtlety, plus is kind of a B movie.
The Fast and the Furious + Ocean’s Eleven + Predator (* The Rock!) = Fast Five
Awesome film. Probably a good idea to keep hammers away from me for a while…
Doesn’t hide the seems so well… and it’s very style over substance… but what style!
Trailers raised expectations, reviews lowered them significantly. The film itself: good, but not great.
