Project has the stench less of rotting flesh than the whiff of a thoughtless quickie.

You begin to realize that whatever name they want to give this dish, the chief ingredients remain ham, cheese and corn.

Anything that reminds us that there are mass-entertainment options beyond Hollywood's banal formulas is worthwhile.

The film's action sequences have been staged with a dazzling finesse, and the look of the film is splendid.
