One of the silliest hostage thrillers you're ever likely to see Patrick Stewart vamp his way through.

The title could not be a more ironic--the people behind this film don't have a single mind between them, let alone one to master.

Audience Reviews for Masterminds

Quite good that it's sort of a children's production of Die Hard crossed with The Rock, with plenty of violence but no blood or death - which isn't very convincing but at least it protects the PG rating. Patrick Stewart's lip-smacking gusto as the chief bad guy is the film's main asset.
