My rating: 3.0 [rate 3.0]
Trailer was practically the only good thing about this movie. It sucked big time.
There was some nice camere work during car chases, but that’s it. Nothing else. The chases themselves sucked. Mainly because there was no suspence and soundtrack was very weak. And it is practically impossible to make good car chasing scenes without good music and suspence.
The story was simple in itself, but it was even futher oversimplified for the movie. Acting sucked. And there was not enough comedy to feel the gaps, so it felt very slow and boring most of the time.
