There are a lot of postings about this being a "guy" movie, or needing a "pair of testicles" to enjoy it. Let me tell you about this film from a woman's point of view. I loved it! It rocked. I am older than the usual crowd for this film, at 35. I went on a Friday night, at the 10:20 show, and the theater was dead as can be! I was thrilled! I had a great view of some amazing car chases, great motorcycle stunts, and hot guys fighting - what could be better? The acting was good, for this genre, but if you are looking for Oscar nods, look elsewhere. If you like a good kick butt film - this one is for you - no matter what is between your legs. There was a lot of T&A, but that is par for the course for this type. In fact, my date thought it was too complicated for him....Seriously - if you like action and real stunts - not the CG stuff, this one's for you.
