Rotten: With bland protagonists and power figures unpleasant enough for us to want them out of our sight more than we want them defeated, it doesn't do much to hold our interest.
- Brian Webster, Apollo Guide, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: There are moments here that are spectacular, and there are many more that are spectacular failures.
- David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: As if the gruff dialogue isnt bad enough, the action scenes are merely adequate.
- Gary Brown, Houston Community Newspapers, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Vin Diesel not only dishes out maximum hulkage, he does so in the name of saving the world. He alone carries the burden of protecting the fragile and going up against assassins, bullets, rockets, planes, etc. Nothing can stop the the man with shaved gorilla strength. At face value, sure, it's no masterpiece. However, this movie is really fun and I think it's well worth your time. I loved the small touches, like Vin Diesel ripping apart a bunny rabbit and sauteing it with onions. I also appreciated the cage match fight in the middle of the movie designed to show that Vin Diesel can destroy a man twice his size.
