I'm not going to take up space critiquing every single thing in this movie All I am going to say is if you DON'T like people getting beaten to all hell with 2x4s and guns blazing and things getting shot up DON'T see this movie I for one enjoyed it immensely and will be first in line to purchase it once on DVD!!!
I have watched Dwayne Johnson's (The Rock) career for about 5 or 6 years now and can say 100% that his acting gets better with every film. Johnny Knoxville as a cop?? CLASSIC!!!! He has a good future in movies.
The movie as a whole is one kick ass ride no matter how long it is---it is a massive adrenaline rush from the first punch to the last smile. I hope you enjoy this movie as much as I did.
