Missing: plot, dialogue, characters.
January 2, 2009
Overdirected, overacted, generally overwrought mess.

Tenta desesperadamente ser um novo Jogo, Trapaas e Dois Canos Fumegantes, mas perde o jogo, trapaceia o espectador e este quem entra pelo cano.

Elmo touts his drug as being 51 times stronger than coke. If you're looking for a tale of Brits behaving badly, watch Snatch again. It's 51 times better than this.

Abnormal amounts of blood, bullets and wanton bodily functions could put the ill on some unsuspecting viewers.

With an unusual protagonist (a kilt-wearing Jackson) and subject matter, the improbable "Formula 51" is somewhat entertaining, but it could have been much stronger.

...Reeks of a studio trying to cut its losses and make a few bucks before the stiffer competition of Oscar season arrives.
January 2, 2003
Excessive, profane, packed with cartoonish violence and comic-strip characters.

Une trs, trs mauvaise copie du style Guy Ritchie.

Ken Russell would love this. In one scene, we get a stab at soccer hooliganism, a double-barreled rip-off of Quentin Tarantino's climactic shootout - and Meat Loaf explodes.

Formula 51 has dulled your senses faster and deeper than any recreational drug on the market.

All the insufferable antics being put forth (thoughtless racial jokes, forced catch phrases, canned hilarity, superficial frivolity, pointless plotlines) conjure up a steady derivative formula of nonsense with the tasty acceptance of sour skim milk.

It has the requisite flash and profane dialogue that movie audiences seem to like these days, but very little else.

Utterly without redeeming social importance

With jump cuts, fast editing and lots of pyrotechnics, Yu clearly hopes to camouflage how bad his movie is. He fails.
October 23, 2002
Director Yu seems far more interested in gross-out humor than in showing us well-thought stunts or a car chase that we haven't seen 10,000 times.

Formula 51 is not good %u2013 it's not remotely good %u2013 and I hated myself in the morning for enjoying any part of it. But it was just too damn dumb to actually dislike.
October 22, 2002
Dull-witted caper.
