A picture that leaves one thinking less about the fates of the characters than about how the actors had to spend most of their working days soaking wet.

Opens with a squall of anticipatory clichés.
January 1, 2000

The film's story trades that it in for a ride whose memory evaporates the minute you turn your back to the screen

Humans are irrelevant to an effects extravaganza.
