... well, not that good either. But compared to a lot of shoddily written tripe that gets top billing just because of bigger budgets, I'd say this was quite above average. Some rather impressive action scenes, albeit overshadowed by some really awful dialogue... but then again, intra-personal relationships and conversation isn't why you wanted to watch this film in the first place, is it? And a good thing too... Having said that, if you want snappy dialogue and razor sharp delivery, you're occasionally in for, if not a treat, then some truly appetizing morsels. There are many intellectual film villains, but few so deliciously literate and exquisitely brainy (and truly eeevil) as Flint Lukash (J. Kenneth Campbell; brilliant and dazzling as ever!). I'd go so far as to say this bad guy puts several other baddies to shame. (James Bond could have done with more adversaries like this... Now there's a thought!) A pity the good guys aren't quite up to scratch. Still, they tried...
A good evening's entertainment; decent plot outline, lots of big explosions, nice stunt work, and no problems identifying who's on which side during the fight scenes (a common 007-flaw, I might add). Relax, have a good laugh, cheer for the heroes and boo at the baddies and just enjoy the cruise... And get Mr Wein (director) a bigger budget and better dialogue next time! Could be fun...
