    The story is also engaging and hip enough to make it a far easier sit for parents. And it's hard not to like a hero who takes public transportation to a showdown with the bad guy. show more

    If your kids are old enough to safely see the movie by themselves, drop 'em off and pick 'em up after. You don't need to see this one. show more
