Bill I’s Review – 3.5 out of 5
I had almost no expectations that this would capture my attention the way it did. It must be due to Hugh Jackman, as the plot is fairly laughable, especially at the end. But it’s an exciting adventure with believable characters (except maybe the Japanese grandpa), and perfect for a summer night’s entertainment.
Bill C’s Review – 3 out of 5
Bill is right on with this one. It was a decent action movie with a pretty ridiculous (and predictable) plot. Jackman carries it with more to do than just his action scenes. I found the other Japanese woman more interesting than the granddaughter of the grandpa and they sort of set it up so she could come back in any sequels which would be good. If this had been animated I would have recommended Mr. Burns from the Simpsons to play the grandpa.
This also seems like the summer with a lot of robots in movies – this one, Pacific Rim, Iron Man 3. Have I missed any?
I saw this in 3D and I didn’t think it added much. If you see this stay for the closing credits.
