Despite the odd exceptional piece of film-making from Tarantino or Spielberg, I think it is fair to say that the 90s was the decade of the blockbuster. Anyone who has read any of my previous reviews will know that I am a big fan of Hollywood cinema. Being a true child of the 90s, I was brought up on a strict diet of DVDs, Sony Playstations and the internet. However, this does not mean I appreciate any old dross.
And this is dross.
Beginning to end this movie is one big cliche. The characters are one-dimensional, the story is predictable, and the acting is average. What's that I hear you cry? This is all to be expected from a big-budget blockbuster, so long as the special effects are good? Fair point.
But they're not.
In comparison to some of the other blockbusters we were given in the decade of the spectacle, ('Independence Day' and even 'Waterworld') this pales.
I'm not looking for deep hidden meanings, or character development, or commentaries on social issues. Just a few decent performances from a strong cast, and a half-decent script. Is that so much to ask?
