First two acts are very enjoyable "man on a mission" type stuff but the moment they hit space the quality drops because of a lot of techno jargon and cliched misshaps.
Even the death of a character is handled poorly (none of the other characters seem to care all that much).

Ebert says...

“it's too secure within its traditional story structure to make much seem at risk — but with the structure come the traditional pleasures as well.”


I'd agree with that 100% if the last third was as good as the first 2.

And whaddup with that ending? Kinda cool in a mean spirited sort of way but a total WTF moment in a film that plays it "safe".

6/10


Great to see all these old farts in a movie together... just wish it could have been a little better.

This movie sucks from top to (I presume) foot. I sat through the first 30 minutes to see if it had a spark of originality, couldn't see none and gave up. 1\10

Highly predictable and cliched OMOM flick, it has some moments but basically shallow.

For those times you're like watching something, but in fact you're really thinking what you're gonna have for lunch tomorrow.
