Excellent effects-Acceptable acting-Plot holes galore
9 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I were 30 or 40 years younger I'd likely rate this movie higher. But I'm not, so I can't...or won't.

The FX, both visual and sound, are very well done and my hat's off to those teams. Score: A The acting is decent and mostly believable. Score: B- But those plot holes are large enough to sail a modern-day cruise ship through. So I'd have to score the script a solid F.

Summary: this won't be the worst film you've ever seen and if watched with a thumpin' sound system (a big woofer is required)you'll likely get a little pumped in spots. But don't be surprised if you look at your buddies and do a few eye rolls.
