OK, keeping in mind that this is a movie aimed at the younger audience, I still found myself more amused by the actors themselves, than the storyline. With some great action scenes (particularly the rope scene in the car-yard) and some truely corny ones too, it was a mixed bag for me.

Highlights included: Andy Serkis' performance, the... umm... OK, so that was the highlight. The Corn Factor bits: the complete lie about Sodium Pentathol, the over-acting by... well, almost everyone, particularly Mickey Rourke... the Portugese Man of War model and it's ability to electrocute a fish into a skeleton in a split second... the whole concept...

Overall, though the gizmo's weren't TOTALLY unrealistic, the effects used to emulate their actions were pretty lame (eg. Smoke Bomb scene... Just WHERE is the smoke coming from again?) but kids will probably still love it. After all, they can look at a block of wood and see a train, or a racecar, or... so should be able to fool themselves into liking the movie based on what it SHOULD have been, instead of the lame duck it turned out to be.

Enslin's phantom-free run of long ... more...
