Over the years movies have taught many important lessons, chief among these are don't retire, never retire, nothing good will come of it.

I didn't think it was possible to make SFX sequences more baffling and headache inducing than Transformers 2, but Battle: LA found a way.

... this humorless film as unimaginative -- and as exhausting -- as you can get.
