  • Relates more or less the same story as Spy Kids, though in this case the kid is in his late 20s and the spy stuff is much less believable or robust. show more

  • A preposterous thriller where the only thing more disappointing than the ending is the 93 minutes it takes to get there. show more

  • It exists basically as a long showreel for Superman-to-be Henry Cavill, who gets to demonstrate a mastery of run-with-a-gun acting and flex his leading man charisma without really breaking a sweat. show more
