The movie that most nearly approximates a video game: lots of action, no plot, eye-catching computer effects and a dollop of violence.

Far too predictable to recommend to anyone not predisposed to this type of propulsive but vacant entertainment.

It should be worth noting that you can play the game much cheaper than seeing the movie, and the end result is much the same.

Offers a visceral jolt of pleasure for those who formerly believed the martial arts movie genre belongs exclusively to Hong Kong's John Woo.
