I was in the video store, and had seen most of what I wanted to see of the new releases. Saw this one, and said to myself, "that's what I want to see, a mindless little action film, and hey, really good cast!" While none of the actors delivered stellar performances in this one, it did have some pretty cool action and visuals. Totally inane plot though, and a movie can't be much better than its script. I guess because I was ready for a "mindless little action film" it wasn't an entire waste of time.
