A Real Stinker
30 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Cliché after cliché, all of them done horribly wrong. This movie feels like it was pasted together from the scraps and additional scenes of a movie that never made it to the screen because it was so bad. If your car felt as retooled as this movie, it would jump from drive to reverse as you're going down the road. It would shock you (with actual electricity) when you try to turn on the radio, the washer fluid nozzles would be mounted on the INSIDE of the windshield and when you put on your left turn signal the entire vehicle would explode. I don't know what Kevin Costner was thinking, or how Luc Besson's name got attached to this movie. It's as if Luc got drunk and accidentally sold a story to a bartender and a coked-up producer, and the two of them fell out and fought their way to making a crap story into the worst movie possible. The female CIA agent who recruits Costner is one of the worst screen characters I have ever seen. The attempts at making her unique and interesting are so amateurish that I couldn't even make out the intent of the filmmakers. That character alone would ruin a good movie, and this stinker is the furthest thing from a good movie. It doesn't even qualify as a movie if your definition of such includes a coherent story line.
