User Reviews

Entertaining, but fairly typical of the genre.
10 June 2003 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

Although the film does have great special effects and a fast-pace, the film does tend to become a standard fair. The characters are boring, and the script is weak, but it is still fun and has great effects. (***)
