Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

In a summer of cartoons and superheroes, this film positioned itself as action entertainment for grown-ups, even taking a quick shot at Spider-Man. It’s mature, yes, but that doesn’t mean that it’s smart, or good. Wearily mediocre, in part because of one of the blandest leading men in the business, this disappointment would seem unoriginal even if it wasn’t a remake of a genre classic. But Green, Stratham and Def generate some laughs, and the action sequences are professionally executed, not that we would expect less from Gray by now. Too bad Norton fought it; his charm could have helped.
