Unexpectedly good – the writer/director, unlike Batman Begins, Casino
Royale and Superman Returns
Understands what is great about the characters and their story.
It wastes no time getting to the action and is a good as the classic
first movie, but with the addition of fluid CGI fight scenes.
Not seen many Denzel Washington films, but he looks very old here.
Flows slickly like a typical Bruckenheimer blockbuster, with CSI style
investigation becoming a sci fi thriller.
The plot has some holes (why is the ambulance there if the girl died?)
but they don’t hurt the film, unlike the ending of the Prestige.
Just as good as remembered – great casting, script and direction.
This, and Big Trouble In Little China are the way I’d like to remember
Flows along well and is just the thing for a lazy afternoon.
