No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
By-the-numbers doesn't begin to describe how cliche-ridden Randy Feldman's script is.
The big action scenes are cleverly staged and Eddie Murphy is back on his game again, with a high-energy performance and crisp dialogue.
Another forgettable and clueless cut-up cop caper with Murphy in the middle of the misguided mayhem. Instantly generic and mindless to boot
Balancing the elements of comedy and drama are never easy and Metro, Eddie Murphy's latest flick, proves how easy it is to mistep.
Eddie Murphy has declared war on America's eardrums. His new film Metro, in which he plays a police hostage negotiator, must have been financed by a wrecking yard, with help from the stunt drivers guild.

For fans of Murphy or the action genre, Metro is A-okay mindless fun.
While the rest of Thomas Carter's movie is also pretty, it's distractingly stupid.
