You have got to go into these movies knowing that there will be holes in the plot and some corny one-liners. This one does its job which is give you action and provide a fun experience. (3.5 out of 5 stars)
That’s all for this week everyone. Obviously only one movie on the board this week and it is going to bring in a ton of money. Next week we have The Circle with Emma Watson and Tom Hanks. Have a great weekend!
