The latest from Koepp & Co. is one of the summer's wildest, most inventive rides; a lovably loopy adrenaline fest that definitely delivers.

... the kamikaze cyclist's wet dream and the best action movie of the summer, a fun fusion of humor, suspense and pure adrenaline ... Hitchcock meets 'Breaking Away,' anyone?

Initially diverting and thrilling, but with diminishing returns. It's excessively inane and cartoonish. Not enough pleasure to call it a guilty pleasure.

I do have an abiding fondness for compact and coherent action movies, and this is surely one.

It never gels and one of the biggest problems is the lack of a consistent tone.

the powers that be perfectly understand that they are making an evening's diversion, not an artistic statement, which in itself may be a perfectly valid artistic statement

Techs, especially for the fast-paced chases, are pretty slick and hold your eye. After a while though, it all gets repetitive.
