Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
The film looks good, thanks to cinematographer Mike Southon's stylish camerawork, but the script is well dodgy.
The locations - London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Los Angeles - are well deployed, the violence relentless, and the film is beautifully lit by veteran TV and film cameraman Mike Southon.
Totally over-narrated to the point of sheer boredom and the predictable shoot-out is so unconvincing it could have seen the film renamed Reservoir Dregs.
| Original Score: 1/5
Not even the formidable presence of Charles Dance can salvage a script this woeful.
This whole caper is about as gritty as a babywipe.
| Original Score: 2/5
More like being nuzzled by a bulldog than mauled by one.
The script becomes clumsier and cornier as it goes on, and Harper's direction, while competent, lacks the skill to disguise his many attempts to wrongfoot the viewer.
Gang's-all-here drama about dodgy London business interests - basically rubbish, often chucklesome.
Even the presence of Charles Dance as a gentleman crook with connections to Scotland Yard can't hide the fact that the film is all style and no class.
