Starring Kevin Costner, Hailee Steinfeld, Amber Heard, and Connie Nielsen
Directed by McG
***This film is currently streaming on Netflix***
Although I thought the flick started out promisingly with a moderately intense opening action scene, things quickly devolve from there. Costner is actually decent and Steinfeld is charismatic although her character is much too much of a stereotypical jerk of a teenager to give a damn about her various plights. The less said about Amber Heard as Costner's boss, the better -- her character is just so nebulously vague and odd that I never quite understood who she was or why she was told to act like some S&M vixen throughout. McG's direction doesn't do any of the actors any favors, failing to find any rhythm in the dramatic and comedic scenes. (He fares a tiny bit better in the film's action moments, but they're so few and far between that it doesn't much matter.) This one's big ole waste of time.
The RyMickey Rating: D
