3.0 out of 5 stars A hybrid of "Kick-Ass" and "Scott Pilgrem vs. The World". Not nearly as good as either. Hardcore comic fans will love. I say C+, May 27, 2011
This review is from: Cross (DVD)
If you could live forever would you want to? After given a Celtic Cross with incredible powers Callan (Green) forms a team that battles crime in Los Angeles. When Gunnar (Jones) (a man who can't die) steals the cross in hopes to destroy mankind it is up to Callen and his team to save the world. This movie sounds much cooler then it is. This is a live action comic book type movie complete with the writing during the scenes just like in a comic book. The first half hour or so is really entertaining, then it drags on, and on, and on for another hour before the action packed last 15 minutes. The acting is not the best, but with a former 90210 star at the helm that's not surprising. I would call it a mix between "Kick-Ass" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World", but not as good as either of them. If you are hardcore in to these types of movies you will love this. If, like me, you are a casual watcher of super-hero movies you may not be impressed. Overall pretty entertaining in parts and very, very slow in others. After watching "The Green Hornet" this is a tremendous let down, even though its not really fair to compare the two. I give it a C+.

Would I watch again? - Pretty sure I won't

*Also try - Kick-Ass
