in my opinion, all of the good scenes are contained in the movie previews. must admit, i was really looking forward to seeing it. unfortunately, it was all downhill after the opening scene. the movie is rather 'amateurish' as the framing of several scenes show a lack of attention to detail. one of the more glaring examples of this, is when a character is still spotted in the scene, but clearly has no justification for being there--the scene moves on yet this character is still visible--doing nothing, just being there (off in the side-ground). there were a couple of interesting stunts. but overall, too many things just didn't fit and if you see it, you'll see what i mean.
