I think the thing to remember about this film that most people seem to be upset about; its not actually all that action PACKED. It is primarily an odd story about a couple of brothers and their run in with some nasty criminal characters, and yes it's almost entirely due to one of them being pretty dumb. He gets in way over his head and has really no choice but to drag his kid brother along for the ride. That's the primary story at play here, they just dropped a full on plasma rifle into the middle of it to kick it on its head. There's an excellent sense of escalation and even suspense involved, but in order to even make it to the plasma rifle's first firing you'll have to sit through a goodly chunk of the film. I get why this upset some viewers, but I found this approach refreshing. It allowed me to get invested in the characters and main story before the sheer chaos began. It's fairly gritty, and more than a little sad, but also full of humor and touching moments. If you allow yourself to care about the characters more than the rifle. I feel like that's pretty important.
Every role is well acted, especially the mains, and James Franco clearly enjoys this kind of role because he shines as usual. Loads of fun to watch. The weapon itself is also a well crafted and written item, with satisfying action and a decent (if somewhat cryptic) explanation.
Lets get this out of the way with no spoilers. We where watching this film with some friends and their kids. Almost through half of the film. There's a seen in a strip bar with half naked females. the kids that where with us where in the ages of 8-15 years old. The older kids where discussing on how inappropriate it was for this seen to be included in a film rated PG13. Keep in mind that they well know about the birds and the bees. They are well educated in this matter yet they felt uncomfortable as so did we. Past this, the film was really good, with a few question at the end of the film AKA, sequel. It would have been better with out the strip bar seen but we would still rated four stars.
When I rented this movie I didn’t expect to buyThe movie isn’t perfect but I really enjoyed Seeing The characters bond as brothers it felt real at times the movie seemed a bit cheesy but it is definitely unique especially if you enjoy Syfy elements at times it felt wholesome at other times A little more edgy It has a brief but good performance from Dennis Quaid and James Franco 95% certain this is th it has a brief but good performance from Dennis Quaid and James Franco Is the main antagonist In an era of Remakes this movie just continued to stand out and I had to get the 4K steelbook As a collector

I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Get the bluray instead
I was looking forward to the 4K and HDR to make the colors pop in this one but sadly it didnt stand out. In fact most of the time it looked like I was watching a bluray because of the grainy filter over the film. Movie was good but the money would be better spent on the bluray version.
