This is exactly the kind of movie you show up with expectations for, and those expectations are fulfilled.
Those can be either: "I view film as pure escapism and want nothing else in a movie!" Check.
Or: "I expect this to be garbage but I'm going to have a good time so I don't care" Check.
Dwayne Johnson scales a building like Spider-Man using a 2 inch ledge and some duct tape, he swings from a makeshift rope and leaps to safety like Tarzan, and villains have thick accents.
If this sounds like it's up your alley, you'll have a blast. If you expect more, don't.
One of the most cynical films I've seen for years. You can almost hear the studio execs sitting around a table.
"How do we tap into the Chinese market?"
- "Set it in Hong Kong!"
"What action film does everyone love?"
- "Die Hard!"
"Who's the most bankable guy in Hollywood?"
- "The Rock!"
"We have a winner!"
Thoroughly enjoyable action pic. The Rock is Parent Of The Year.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
