Had a few sad moments too. Cool action scenes, Val was cool as were his co actors (The chick from Crash & the boss from the movie Office Space who stole the stapler from the mumbling dude)
Too predictable for the quality performances and cameo moments of brilliance to rescue.
There's a final shootout scene where the two good guys crouch with no cover and shoot two dozen men, without being fatally wounded themselves. Nice camera work gents, you've successfully hidden the view that shows they were 12 feet apart. I didn't notice that suddenly all the scenes became close-ups, not at all. But I did notice the bad guys were shuffling awfully slow for a shoot out.
And what was with the hints at supernatural powers? Dreck, all around dreck.
Kilmer's face is reminiscent of President Pompidou of France when he was having chemo for cancer. Does Val Kilmer have cancer? Is that why he was virtually immobile in the entire film? Was he in too much pain to act?
I remember Kilmer in Real Genius and Thunderheart, cheeky presence and virile fortitude. Now he looks like he is decomposing.
