Comment: I saw this movie last night and as soon as I left the theater, it instantly become my new favorite movie. I didn't think that The Rock was going to give much of a performance, but I was proved wrong. He makes one heck of an action hero. Kelly Hu did a pretty good job too as the sorceress. Director Chuck Russell once again proves he is incapable of making a bad film and the screenplay by Russell, Jonathon Hales, David Hayter, William Osborne, and Stephen Sommers isn't as cliched and silly as you may think. The music is great, the special effects are excellent, and the plot just keeps moving along. I recommend it.
