Goofs

All throughout the movie, Triton takes many hard, brutal punches to the face but there's never any signs of damage. Even during the initial kidnapping, he was running full speed when one of the jewel thieves hit him in his forehead with fire extinguisher, knocking him unconscious. Finally, in the closing minutes of the film, Triton is hit in the ribs with a sledgehammer but it apparently didn't do anything as he proves to be perfectly fine minutes later, again. See more »

Disappointing
13 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

As a real fan of action movies I was looking forward to a great action movie from seeing the previews however I found it disappointing. First, the whole story line with the Marine Corps is very unrealistic (don't want to spoil anything here), there a lot of big explosions, but acting is just very wooden. While I don't look for a heavy complicated plot in an action film, it is always helpful to have something to hold it together. The story line is very linear and predictable. In the theater I was in, the audience actually started laughing out loud at the predictability and cliché lines. So go for the explosions and the star is good looking (although we only see his body in one scene unfortunately) but don't expect too much from a movie produced by the WWF.
