    Surprisingly this was better than I thought it would be, It was 20 minutes too long but the story was interesting, Nicholas Cage was better here too, than in National Treasure and the special effects are great. Worth a watch but expect to feel a twinge of what might have been with a tighter script. Some great if traumatic cinematography particularly during a one shot crash scene that is both shocking and spectacular.
