    ★★★

    This film was horrifically confusing and it was completely unclear who the bad guy was for much of the runtime. Even the action was disjointed and broken with weird CGI motions and effects that don’t make anything better. I think, ultimately, it was a failure of direction.

    This is cheesy and overwrought and ridiculously, deliciously indulgent. And I loved every damn minute. 

    Hilariously dirty song lyrics, bulging biceps, shark fights, lots and lots of stabbings and a spinning jeep shootout. What more could a girl ask for?
