"GOOD: + Special Effects: looked good, not fake + Fight scenes: seemed real, brutal ; BAD: - Acting was horrible across the board, especially the Rock - Plot holes were HUGE! (when in the heck did the female change teams? why burn $$) - Agents were way too easily turned to the other team - Too much male angst, seemed forced - Too many characters - Way too fake (disappearing safe) - Hate how they tried to make stealing morally ok, since the drug dealers were worse"
