    The character of ZigZag is not sufficiently developed to support a film constructed around him.
  2. Reviewed by: John Dentino
    A great ensemble cast can't lift this heartfelt enterprise out of the familiar.
  3. Kid-pulp screenwriter Goyer (Dark City, Blade I and II) manages some mature textures but his movie never surmounts its manipulative ideas.
  4. Might have been richer and more observant if it were less densely plotted. The characters would resonate more if there were fewer of them, and if they were not pushed through so many contrived dramatic incidents.
  5. Either a put-on or a straight shooter; that you can't tell the difference underscores its small but ultimately overwhelming flaws.
