I liked the film. It was jaunty and active without being insanely jumpy, the way the Spiderman films were. I am a contrarian. I think someday this films will be recognized as better than the critic said it was. It was similar to Men in Black.
The same kind of buddy film. Older and wiser and young up-and-comer. Lots of weapons, bad guys and a high tech precinct. The stars were enjoying themselves and I enjoyed watching them. I think this films should have a caught a break. It was watchable and well paced

Watched this flick when it came out on DVD. Glad I waited. It's kind of a cross between Men In Black and Starsky & Hutch. Special effects are pretty cool, but the storyline really wasn't that good. It's too bad, because with the all-star cast, this really should have been a better film.
