I love the special effects! The story line was good. Although i felt it could have explained a few things a little better. But it was good. The acting was good as well. It's a pretty good buy if you're more in it for the special effects and action.
For what this movie was it was pretty good but not great, but it kept me entertained with all of the action. The storytelling could of been a little better in this movie, but overall I enjoyed this movie for what it was.
So this isn't a very good movie, but I got it very inexpensively. It's beautiful to look at and the action is lots of fun at times. It's what I call a Saturday afternoon movie that you can watch with your brain turned off.
This movie, not surprisingly, got some bad reviews upon release. It’s not for the critics, but it’s good fun if you like big dumb action movies. You can always count on Gerard butler to shine in these types of movies. Also the Steelbook version of the physical release is excellent, one of my favorites in my collection.
