Rob from GuysFilmQuest75 - CGI was a mixed-bag. Some of the acting was bad, but not by Reynolds & Lively. Some of the editing and storyline choices detracted heavily. No need to reboot the series.

Bryan Lienesch62 - As much as I like Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, this film could have been way better. One of those classic cases where a decent concept falls victim to the high-end effects of Hollywood.

Steve Habrat35 - Little to no build up, a limp hero, and too much CGI. A mess of a movie.
