Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”
This movie is nowhere near as hellish as the trailers or the presence of Seann William Scott would indicate. Yes, it is preposterous, with scenes such as characters tumbling down a mountainside that would kill them three times over, then getting up with barely a bruise. But it also has an energetic, playful spirit, evoked most of all (in a film featuring Christopher Walken) by the cinematography, which comes up with a dizzying number of ways to show objects hitting men in the head. It’s fun, and smarter than it has to be, and for those reasons I recommend it.
