Fortunately, the characters all behave seriously, frequently stifling any hint of empathy - but their dialogue and actions scream of silliness.

All brawn, no brains, but grows on you if you can prefer your action in one big, dumb hulking slab of alpha-male aggression.

Leaves behind almost as many derisive laughs as dead bodies.

It may be little more than an expensive arcade game for overgrown kids, but it moves too fast for critical flak to stick.

Mostly this is an amalgam of ideas, images and whole scenes lifted from other movies.

Roland Emmerich's best film, and Lundgren's best acting job. Admittedly that ain't saying much in either case, but a fun flick all in all.
