Mismatched agents team up to prevent a bio-engineered villain from stealing a deadly toxin. Dumb-but-fun-but-dumb again action-comedy sidequel to the later Fast/Furious flicks. Jolly bickering and star cameos help, but the film too-quickly becomes wearying in its CG excesses when it should be at least physics-aware.
Another viewpoint? Here!
Daft and fun Fast & Furious Side-spinoff. Muscles and Cockney battle to save the world from super-virus and plot obligatory super soldier. Really silky, but not played too seriously and some laughs and crazy action!
An ex-FBI agent turned security consultant must rescue his family from a high-tech skyscraper overrun by fire and criminals. Derivative though passable tosh, mashing up Die Hard and The Towering Inferno. Johnson as charismatic as ever, though he’s ill-served by a rote script.
Second and third opinions required?
Surprising feel good movie based on the real life events of a would be female wrestler. Funny, witty with a confident cast and a plenty to like. Very enjoyable!
A zoologist and a renegade scientist team up to stop genetically-enhanced animals rampaging. Perfunctory and slightly po-faced monster mayhem, with only Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s man in black entering properly into the tongue-in-cheek fray.
Four teens are transported into an old video game. Contrived but fun sequel to the 1996 movie, which gets a lot of comedy out of its avatar/body-swap shtick, though the actual story is as linear as the games it spoofs. eXistenZ for kids, almost.
A disgraced Olympic swimmer becomes a lifeguard. Patchy and overlong reprise of the 90s TV show. Some funny moments, but they’re spread over a thin plot, iffy CG and a reliance on beach bodies and grossout/insult humour to carry the day.
Want a second opinion? Here’s Xussia’s take.
