This is one of my favorite types of movies but I did not like it as much as I heard how good it is. As much action and adventure there was in it, I thought it was dry. I might be imagining things but it did not impress me. I don't know what movies to compare it to: just the other action adventure movies. I loved the effects of it especially on the Blu-Ray version. It was as if all the action overtook the actual story. I would not recommend this movie if you don't like nonstop action that overtakes the story.
