    ★★½

    Nice set design and costuming - especially for 2005 - and the storyline is somewhat interesting. Otherwise this thing is directed and edited really poorly. The acting is for shit and the action is excruciatingly boring.

    All of the movies (about a thousand of them) this movie borrows from are much better.

    ★★★½

    Spends way too much time on crap that doesn't really have anything to do with the anything for this type of movie. Meanwhile, there are some really strange edits made throughout the picture that take away some of the story and "sequences".

    The scene at the high school is a great idea, but it just sort of happens quickly and out of the blue. There's no build-up or explanation and I feel like there was about a five minute segment that was cut up to make the movie shorter and ended up giving the entire sequence an unfinished feel.

    This movie beat The Pianist? Fuck you.

    ★★★★

    Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.

    The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
