    Six guys and a gal who flatline on arrival. Easily the lamest action-adventure fantasy since “Wild Wild West.” show more

    Wall Street Journal

    Succeeds the same way the original comic books did: by making the conflicts and dilemmas basic enough for a five-year-old, while giving the heroes and villains glamorous outfits and layers of complexity, to thicken the broth.

    Nothing anchors the lighter-than-air story as it drifts away under the direction of Stephen Norrington ("Blade") into an FX stratosphere where wit, character and vigorous storytelling cease to matter. show more
