This is something not quite of this world - while the premise is itriguing and there are few interesting ideas (bits of ideas) hidden in the movie, it all gets overshadowed by epically bad Keanu Reeves trainwreck-performance - by all accounts, this is Keanu's "The Wicker Man", down to the last scene.
Still, however "entertaining" that may be, the rest of the film doesn't live up to that. Great T&A, though - two stars for both girls, combined.
In a time when crafting a solid B-movie becomes a rare gift, this solid and entertaining combo of "Heat" and "Speed" wins by simply delivering the goods. Great Jeffrey Dean Morgan, acceptable DeNiro, wasted Bautista, few great action beats and quick pacing (film is only 90 minutes long) makes this a solid B-movie entertainment.
A perfectly executed lesson in world-building, stunt-staging, editing and non-stop suspense from the (mad) mastermind George Miller also serves as a huge middle-finger to modern-day action "products" - it's fast, brutal, violent and, at times, utterly mad.
We needed a film like this, and we got it - I'm not sure yet if I need a sequel, I just want to see this one again (and again) to soak in all the details!
