Trivia

The possibly only good review recorded to dare by a professional critic (yet wasn't recorded on Rotten Tomatoes' site) was a review for the Daily Herald by film critic Jean Carey. It was recorded on Sept. 20, 2002 and the headline was " 'Ballistic' a great time at the movies." See more »

Goofs

When Ecks picks the handcuffs, in the police bus, he holds a paperclip with his right hand and picks the cuff on his left wrist. The cuff around his right wrist comes open, but the paper clip is sticking out of the left cuff's lock. See more »

Lucy Liu is tough, if nothing else
29 April 2015 | by vchimpanzeeSee all my reviews

For the past several years I have watched Lucy Liu as a low-key, intelligent partner to the brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes. While this is not the type of movie I would enjoy, I did like seeing Liu in a very different role as a capable martial arts fighter who also used serious weapons.

Sever could beat up a big burly man who hit on her, or pretty much anyone else, or blow up everything in sight, or shoot at anyone around her with firepower I doubt most soldiers would have, and show no emotion whatsoever. And never a hair out of place. And great looking clothes, just like Dr. Watson.

And yet in scenes with the kidnapped boy, she almost seemed compassionate. At least she seemed somewhat caring. Not the monster who all the cops wanted to take down.

Also worth mentioning is the overly confident billionaire bad guy from "Scandal". Here, Gregg Henry played a character who was merely rich, but didn't quite achieve that character you love to hate (except I only hated the man in "Scandal"). Later in the movie, he showed signs of what he could do.

I thought Antonio Banderas was considered a quality performer, and he certainly showed his talent as Puss in Boots last night on "Jeopardy" (assuming that was him). Here, he seemed bored and tired.

So is there anything about this worth seeing? Well, I didn't pay for it, beyond what I pay each month to get a dependable signal and the ability to record. If there's anything good in it at all, it wasn't a total waste of time.
