An action film that forgot the action (spoilers)

It's puzzling how much of this movie is people standing around yakking - whether it's ffolkes and his crew, or the hijackers and the ship's crew. The ending is also over much too quickly, the main bad guy dispatched without a proper fight.

"Worthington, we're being attacked by giant bats!"


It's more an adventure/suspense film than a straight up action flick so if you go in expecting DIE HARD you're going to be sorely disappointed.

But if it's tension, humor, excitement and inventive situations you crave then FFOLKES is the movie to rent. Or better yet, own!
