This on-set candid is way more fun than the movieParamount Pictures

Low 3 Stars (Time Fairly Well Spent)Why I Saw It: Press screening, and preparing for being on the Critics Circle this Saturday.
What I Thought: Since I’m not into what some action fans affectionately call “dumb action that lets me turn my brain off,” I was in trouble; I love action, but I still need to think (for better or worse). The brilliant Toni Collette was wasted here – someone had the idea that weary disdain conveys power. Alas.
