Sorry - this did very little for me. As a fan of this genre I am well aware of what to expect in terms of plot and though sometimes a change in this routine is interesting, I for one am happy that I know more or less exactly the 'win, lose, win' scenario. If I am disappointed it is often in the lack of opportunity to follow the leads once they are consolidated as a pair. In that respect this movie fails miserably. You are taken along a scarcely credible plot (OK that's often fine) and then just when emotionally you are looking for a little bit of 'depth' to allow you to blend with the movie it literally drops you without warning. It's as though they suddenly realised they needed to have an ending and then rushed it and in doing so they wasted the opportunity to give the movie a heart. Very rare for me to be moved to comment these days and even rarer for comments to be so negative, I suppose you could say that at least this very very lightweight effort achieved that.
