Rotten: Joe is the latest bloated float in Sommers's sad parade of cinematic shame...a glorified Cannon Films production with a nasty case of ADD."

Mildly ammusing from a "sci-fi/tech" and over the top action standpoint, though just about everything else in this film felt like a complete waste of time. To spite being greatly under-used here, both Joseph Gordon Levitt and Christopher Eccleston were the high points of this film. And I have to say that after hearing and reading all the buzz on "rising star" Channing Tatum over the past couple of years, I was blown away by how bad an actor he is. A friend said "But he is so cute and he has a nice body", to which my response was: "Then they have miss marketed him...I think perhaps he would do better in the porn industry!" Luckily we caught this on cable, so no money or valuable Netflix queue space was wasted.

No it won't win any Oscars, but this was a surprisingly very good all out action blockbuster! It never lets up, just one action scene after another and with the same amount of special effects as the last few Star Wars films!! The CGI on the whole is great, bit ropey in some scenes but the detail in the back grounds and vehicles is great. Plenty of special features on the DVD regarding the CGI too! A great enjoyable fun blockbuster film from the director of The Mummy films. Grab the popcorn, switch your brain off and enjoy!
