    Sleek...This is one "return" that's surely welcome.
  2. Has a shameless B-movie exuberance.
  3. 59
    Engagingly silly sub-"Moonlighting"-style banter.
  4. 25
    The Return is about bullets, bombs and boobs - the biggest boob being Van Damme, natch, but there are also mammaries aplenty.
  5. 25
    Devoid of personality and has an annoying gratuitous sentimental streak.
  6. 20
    Plenty of bone-crunching brawn, but not a brain cell in sight.
  7. Lame, mindless dialogue makes Wing Commander seem Cukoresque by comparison.
