This is the worst film that I’ve seen in a hugely long time and if I can stop anyone from considering watching it, I will feel that my humanitarian requirements for the year have been met.  Instead, watch I Know Who Killed Me (2007) which is also awful, but a lot more entertaining in the way that bad films can be.  This film lacks anything at all to recommend it, seriously.  It’s bad from the first couple of shots and stays that way all the way to the end.

Essentially, both a send up and a literal “shoot ’em up” film, it tries to play the arched eyebrow camp of its comedy on top of its over-the-top action.  Whatever Clive Owen or Paul Giamatti’s agents were thinking…I don’t know.  It’s completely a waste of time, energy, and to prove that point, I shall say nothing more.
