This is a dumb dumb dumb movie and yes it knows it. The thing is that it's aimed at the kids whose parents used to play this game not the parents themselves. All that being said this movie is much better than the trailers led me to believe hell I'd go so far as to say that this is actually much better then it had any right to be. Dwayne Johnson is very likable as always, as bad as it is it does actually have a story. The opening scenes in the space station were pretty cool, the rest of the film is at least paced decently. I enjoyed all of the nodes and Easter eggs in the movie. While the CG isn't great it kind of works for the movie since it's based on a goofy as hell video game. But the worst part even worse than the lame one liners and CGI gorilla middle finger jokes were the villains who sucked out any enjoyment I was having any time they were on screen. It's dumb, shitty mindless fun not much worse than a lot of the other summer blockbusters out there.
