    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Slick-dick director Simon West, of "Con Air" and "The General's Daughter" infamy, continues to show no flair at all for blending action and character. Jolie and Lara deserved better. So did we. show more

    There's no clear plot, no memorable villains, no real logic. But there sure is action. show more
