Rating (Out of 4): 3

Pros: Absolutely ridiculous and completely implausible action set-pieces.  Good humor throughout.  A movie designed entirely to entertain.

Cons: Depending on what you expect from a movie, what’s mentioned first in the “Pros” section could be a definite “Con”.  Pretty much boils down to an over-glorified B-movie.
