As cumbersome as most films in this subgenre, Angelina Jolie makes it watchable.
A by-the-numbers extravanganza that journeys from London to Venice to Siberia to Cambodia without ever really going anywhere.
The relevant question is: does it rock? And the answer, unfortunately, is no.
There's no clear plot, no memorable villains, no real logic. But there sure is action.
Game boys and girls will be disappointed by this fast-paced but shockingly dull adaptation.
The effects are cheesy, the photography is murky, the sets look like leftovers from a Las Vegas stage spectacular -- and the flick appears to have been edited with a roulette wheel.
Remarkably joyless, even though Ms. Jolie is a formidable presence with the potential for becoming a witty one.
