This is the first time I watched an action film in a long while and though it wasn't an excellent movie, I have to admit that it was entertaining. The cast was mostly unknowns except for the actor who played Denny Duquette in Grey's Anatomy (I don't even know his real name), Zoe Saldana (of Avatar fame) and Chris Evans (who played one of the Fantastic Four). Of all the leads, it was Chris Evans who stole the show and provided some comic moments in the film. The villain was very annoying. Whether this was intentional or not, it would have been better if he was less campy. Zoe reminded me too much of her character in Avatar and just reminded me how amazing Neytiri looked. "Denny" looked too old and chunky to be doing the action sequences. The movie was also full of clichés. In some scenes, you can almost predict when there will be a car blast, when someone will get shot and when the lead star will save the day. This movie is ideally watched if you have nothing to do and just need to watch something entertaining. Don't expect a great action movie so that you won't get disappointed.
