    ★★★

    Helldorado is a much more memorable title, but even with a boring name change this is a pretty decent action comedy. The players mix well and there's enough quirk to make this a likely eventual re-watch.

    ★★½

    Not outright trash, but far from a masterpiece. Granted, the action sequences are adequately entertaining, but everything else is largely forgettable. Even if you're a Dwayne Johnson fan, there are better vehicles out there.

    ★★★

    Like the most heartwarming extended Twilight Zone episode ever. Actually, it's a light and funny film with decent comedy from Bruce and better from Breslin.

    ★★★★

    Yes, yes, it helps to have grown up watching this film to really feel the undying love for it now, and it's hard to know what someone coming to it for the first time as an adult would make of it, but c'mon...it's still funny, still exciting, still occasionally hokey, and still makes one regret never finding that trap-laden pirate cave you were sure was somewhere in your own neighborhood. Just me?
