My wife and I like watching movies. I've logged nearly everything we've seen since 2005. My other hobbies include baseball and disc golf.

    Sure the plot was ludicrous, but this was exactly what I needed for my first trip back to the theater in 18 months. I'll never take popcorn movies for granted again.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The perfect 80s action movie. A Don LaFontaine "In A World..." trailer, literal death-defying stunts, a memorable bad guy with his own hype man, a kid with a boomerang so sharp it'd make Oddjob jealous. 


    But you have to a subtract half a star because the dog dies. Those are the rules.

    Pure magic. Outstanding performances all around, and maybe only the second justified and fully realized utilization of 3D, with Cameron's Avatar being the other. I felt the need to stand up and cheer for the first time since The Lord of the Rings. This is why we go to the movies.
