Not a moment wasted.
2 January 2017 | by gulli_petursSee all my reviews

Full disclosure: In my frank opinion, these types of Sandleresque films as a whole get scored way too low. They do not aim high, but usually hit the mark quite accurately.

This film is, simply put, fun. There was not a moment where I got bored or thought about switching to something else. When judging films one must consider the films intentions. of course this isn't Schindler's List or LotR: Return of the king, but what it aims to do, it does wonderfully.

While I was watching this film there was not a moment where I thought 'This is boring' or 'I want to switch to something else'.

If you want a lighthearted, yet action packed comedy/action movie, this one fits there perfectly.
