Quick Review

"What kinda fucked up tour is this?"

My favorite Michael Bay movie and among my favorite action movies. The story is imaginative, exciting and far out, as is the execution. Everything is done with a great sense of humor. Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage and Ed Harris are the main reasons this works so well, as their performances are electrifying.

Overblown, funny and highly entertaining.
