    Low on raunch but even lower on laughs. It also looks like half the lighting crew failed to show up.

    Loud, incoherent and unfunny, Here Comes the Boom is the sound of American culture imploding.

    Here Comes The Boom seems to have made it from the pitch stage - Kevin James does MMA to save his school or something! - to the big screen without an iota of inspiration, ambition, or personality seeping in at any juncture.

    "Here Comes the Bomb" would've been a more fitting title, but props to Henry Winkler for rising to the occasion and turning in a sweet, idealistic performance in a film that otherwise feels like a tawdry commercial for the UFC and MMA.
