    by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • a chewy, not exactly nutritious but thoroughly watchable exercise like one of the lesser "Lethal Weapon" movies, or maybe an older near-great (or at least better-than-average) fun genre exercise like "The Hot Rock"
    2.5 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
