    Geared at the teeny~pop generation, this movie doesn't do one thing for me. The best part of the movie was the 20 or so second shot of Walkers back side, and that wasn't even that great.

  1. Manages to be both astoundingly derivative and reasonably entertaining at the same time.
  2. The potential for action never lets up; you never know what's coming around the next corner.
