Turn off your brain, tune out logic
11 February 2009 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This is a movie about a bodyguard who has to protect somebody but can't do a worthwhile job of it.

Like most action movies of this sort, it loses logic about 20 minutes in.

The bad guys are too bad for their own good, but they look good in fancy suits and with nice weaponry.

The good guys are too dumb - tough but dumb.

Now, if I had to relocate a witness, I would not take them to places that would be popular or hot or known to anybody.

I would throw them in back of a beat-up car, wearing rags and take them to some place that nobody would ever think of.

They would listen to me or I would bust their teeth.

However as in every other witness relocation/protection movie - logic is misplaced for what is supposed to be a story.

The performances are bad, the story is bad and the action is also bad.

However for a comedy, it's not too bad...if you want a little bit of action with your funny.

With a whole bunch of useless and needless locations, scenes, action sequences and dialog as well as major plot holes - this could be one of the lost comedies that you may find interesting.

The nightclub scenes are pretty interesting...walking around in ski masks in a nightclub and nobody notices.

Brandishing weaponry across a dance-floor and nobody moves until gunfire is sprayed.

Yep, it's the little things that can make a movie good or it's the little things that can make a movie horrible.

This does the latter.
