It's a "save the universe" adventure with a mystical/magical accent. There's a baffled good guy - even his mother keeps him in the dark. There's a mysterious babe who recruits him into he knows not what. There are bad guys who pop up in surprising places, and this movie's places are more surprising than most. And there's Rutger. His presence is pretty much a guarantee of quality entertainment.
This film shows good workmanship throughout, good effects without going to excess, and good choreography in the bloodless fights. If you're looking for fine art or deep philosophy, you're looking for something this film never meant to give. This is an action movie, that's all. With Hauer, it's a very good action movie. Enjoy it accordingly.
Josh Charles plays Joe Talbot, a down on his luck type of guy who never seems to get a break. He spends most of his time fretting about girls--not unusual for a guy in his early twenties--and dealing with his two raucous friends Steve and Stu (with Jack Black in the role of boisterous Steve). At a party thrown by mutual acquaintances, Talbot spots an intriguing blonde woman staring at him from across the room. She disappears soon after only to reappear later in Talbot's room in time to warn him about some sort of calamity about to occur. It turns out this woman, Laura (Andrea Roth), is an agent for some extra-dimensional rebel group out to stop a very evil man from gaining possession of a powerful object.Read more ›

There are visual twists to the story that are interesting and I found myself thinking about aspects of the film months after first viewing it...
Rutger Hauer does an excellent job, and the action just keeps rolling.
The movie was more family friendly than some and was light on violence; it reminded me of one of the Disney action flicks produced for general audience.
The movie held my attention all the way to the end and had a satisfactory ending that wrapped everything up nicely as a PG-13 film should.
Although this film is not really outstanding, it is good; considering it's family friendly I can recommend it for a family environment.

Meh. Couldn't wrap my head around Rutger Hauer and Jack Black in the same movie, so HAD to check it out. It's ok. Wouldn't take the time to watch it again.Published 2 months ago by Dee
Disappointing, I expected more from a Rutger Hauer movie. He was his usual solid acting self, but the lead character was worth one star at best. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Debiz
