Well, yes...it was pretty awful. But not nearly as awful as I thought it would be. The action scene with Duke and Ripcord running through the streets of Paris in their accelerator suits was actually kinda fun, and Joesph Gordon Levitt's role is so over the top ridiculous that I couldn't stop laughing every time he was on the screen.
But other than that? Yeah...atrocious. It's level of unintentional silliness can best be summed up by one decision that having seen the film I can't imagine how anyone thought it could be a good idea: Snake-Eyes, the ninja who doesn't say a word the entire film, has lips molded into his mask (you can kind of see them in the image above).
Big, bold, luscious lips.
Do I ever want to see it again? No. Am I glad I saw it at least once? Not really. But it looked like it might be pretty on Blu-ray, and that was the reason I rented it.
Coming soon: having lost all reason, I rent 2012. It can't be all that bad, right?
