Great film that doesn't involve any brain activity
4 February 2007 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Plot line is weak? Yes. The acting is bad? Well... you can't expect much acting from such a weak plot line anyway. But what I liked about this movie is that it is NOT an action movie, it is a comic action movie. Just sit back and enjoy some great explosions, fighting scenes and snappy comic remarks. I couldn't stop laughing through the whole movie. At least it looks like they didn't try to make a "serious" action movie. They tried to make a movie for those who enjoy WWE, I guess. And that is why I'm giving it an 8/10, since I think the movie fulfills it's purpose.

It has some of the greatest explosions I've ever seen in a movie, seriously, kudos to the SFX team. The comic remarks vary from silly things like the "I hate rock candy" to references to other movies (when you see the movie you'll understand). That is why I say this isn't a "serious" movie.

To watch this movie I suggest a few friends, some beers and turn off all brain activity. I did that and had a good time watching it. And I still use quotes from the movie to grab a quick laugh.
