    Would have been much higher if I had been able to follow the action. The action was terrible. Shaky-cammed and machine-gun edited all to hell. Also thought the antagonists were a couple of non-threatening fashion models. All the old-timers were terrific, though. Great chemistry.

    Agree about the villains, especially the main one.

    But I had no issues with the action. Thought it was pretty awesome.

    I gave it a 6/10 based on the old-timers' performances alone.
