Not worth my time.
Reynolds plays Reynolds but nowhere near as fanny as in Free Guy (another you can live without it movie)
Gal Gadot and Dwayne are there. They both look tired and not even trying.

Pointlessly over the top most of the time.

Wish I hadn’t.

Thanks for the review and the heads up...


I was going to watch it the last two nights but I got side tracked by Shaft with Samuel L Jackson on Friday and then Silverado last night...

We turned it off half way through. Didn't hold our interest.

What he said. Silly comedic shit, but they billed it as such so I pretty much knew what I was getting into. Reynolds was really annoying, is he always like that? I don't usually watch stuff like that (i.e., silly comedic shit) but I was in a weird mood or something I guess. Not a complete waste of time but I won't bother watching it again.

I felt like I knew what to expect going in, and ultimately enjoyed the silly escapist spectacle that is was. Realism isn't something I really expected from Wonder Woman, Deadpool, and a famous Wrestler.

I watched it last night and rather enjoyed it. I guess I'm one of the few who like Reynolds' comedic schtick as I got a few good chuckles out of it. Whoever casted Johnson should be fired though. The guy just can't act and is not funny.

Kind of a silly modern-day Raiders of The Lost Ark.

It was aww-ight. Can’t disagree with Gus, Dwayne Johnson wasn’t believable in that role, but it was decent Saturday pizza night entertainment.

Nice to see my assessment based on a few moments of trailer validated.

Watched the trailer, said "Well, this is gonna suck." and moved on.

I’m not sure what anyone would expect from a movie starring these two. I agree Ryan Reynolds gets old sometimes, and this movie was nothing new. I doubt they intended it to be anything more than mindless entertainment.

It was good enough for a free movie. I don’t regret watching it but I’ll likely never watch it again.

Well, if the trailer is any indication (and apparently, it is...) they nailed the "mindless" part.

"Entertainment" not so much.

It was fun, I enjoy watching Reynolds.

And Gal Gadot lights up the world whenever she smiles. Big Grin

Coulda done without the Indiana Jones bit, that was just stupid (or stupider, if you prefer).

Looks like a money grab by the studios and actors.

Get three beautiful, stick them into an over-the-top action movie, around international locations and presto! Everyone makes money

I haven't liked the Rock since I smelled what he was cooking, a big whiney poser, the wife is a fan though. Gal and the other dude made it watchable, mindless, over the top entertainment

Dwayne is too stiff and Gadot and Reynolds’s were hamming it up. The look on Reynolds’s face when the truth was revealed was worth what I paid to see it.

About what I expected from the cast. Comedy/action not a serious action movie. Gal Gadot made it watchable.

We had super-low expectations but decided to give it a try. It was entertaining enough that we watched the whole thing.
