| The film is exactly what you expect.
Saw via an early Unlimited Screening. Its no Oscar contender, but for a comedy adventure family film; it fulfils its purpose.

None of the heroes use guns, although they do snap necks. They also show several deaths with blood splatter. So not for the squeamish. There are also scenes of bugs entering ears which can be off-putting.

The teenage high school drama and love story is cheesy, as is the school bully / loner story arc. Its nothing we have not seen before. But it sets up the character traits and once were in the Jungle, it gets a lot better.

It feels a little short, and some scenes like the Transporter Hanger was suppose to hard, but the lack of bad guys didn't make much sense. Every scene appeared to have been written to serve each characters death in turn. From eating cake to walking alongside a cliff. Trying to keep track of who had how many lives left let you predict who was going to die next.

But it was at least trying to show character growth with each plot point and establish how these people change which is something I suppose.

Removing the staples from magazines before recycling was nonsense. But that's the level of thought that had gone into the writing process. But again, its not trying to win any Oscars and is up against Star Wars in the cinema (whose stupid idea was that?) so I doubt its going to beat it at the box office.

But once were in the game, its a fun, adventure film with four strong comedic actors doing what they do best. It excelled at its goal and is worth watching on the big screen.
