| A great "Man's Movie"
I love this movie but my wife hates it!

This one combined great actors, comedy, action, bad guys, good guys, women, strong women, lions, tigers, (no bears), drama, explosions, gunfire, helicopters, deception, impossible situations and narrow escapes.

Now I ask you. What else are you looking for? Education and information? The ballet it is not, although there is some action high on buildings.

If you are male or like male type movies, you can't go wrong!

Goldie is delicious as always, Mel Gibson is, well, Mel Gibson!

This movie is a action thriller comedy that moves from start to finish!
