  • Not as bad a movie as it sounds, just mediocre. show more

  • It has its moments of swaggering camaraderie, but more often just feels generic, derivative and done to death. show more

  • The movie crosses two formulas -- Fish Out of Water and Coming of Age -- fairly effectively. Because it isn't wall-to-wall action but actually bothers to develop its characters and take an interest in them, it was not at first considered commercial by its distributor, New Line, and languished on the shelf for two years. show more
