All good adventure movies have a few things in common. First, you’ve got to have some good old fashioned, fun action sequences. Next, you need an interesting (or at the very least entertaining) story. Next, you need a love interest. And finally you need some laughs.

This movie had all of that, but it still didn't work for me. It was terribly boring in parts, and no I'm not talking about just the "talking parts", I'm not a Neanderthal sheesh! Some of the action was actually pretty boring. It was all very matter of fact. There was no sense of urgency or danger whatsoever. Even in something like James Bond or Indiana Jones (in which you know the main character will never actually die), you are still on the edge of your seat.

I'd say a good 75% of the movie didn't get any reaction out of me at all. I didn't laugh, I wasn't on the edge of my seat, etc. It was a shame too, because I really wanted to like it. I just couldn't. I was bored out of my mind with the anticlimactic nature in which the story was told.

Rating: Thumbs down.
