Over the past few months, I've been taken in by some movies that have been deemed 'cinematic masterpieces' by some. I've also had the 'pleasure' of watching TV-movies that can be found at the bottom of the bargain bin in some video stores.
This movie is neither. It is not a 10/10 movie masterpiece, nor is it a bargain-bin, third-rate, C-list, avoid-at-all-costs tape. It sits right in the middle of the spectrum. It is watchable and entertaining, yet not exactly worthy of the Oscar or Golden Globe awards. It was action-packed, fun to watch and a great way to spend a Saturday night at home, either by yourself or others.
Out of ten, I give this film a 7. It lost 3 points for the somewhat hollow acting, but still, it was a fun movie, if you don't take it seriously.
