I saw the screening last night and while I wouldn't call it bad, I would say that just because you take a B-Movie, give it top-notch actors and a big budget, doesn't stop it from being a B-Movie.
The movie was fine, but Daniel Craig looked like he was channeling Zoolander since his biggest role was being eye-candy. Harrison Ford was playing a role that could be played by pretty much anyone of a certain age. He didn't seem to bring anything of himself. I love Sam Rockwell and Clancy Brown, but this review was right. Their parts was thin at best.
The Olivia Wilde part was terrible. I openly laughed when she had... her scene (no spoilers here...)
I enjoyed it enough, but I am glad I didn't pay for it...
I really just find it hard to care about this movie. While I was interested before the first trailer came out, my interest kind of waned since then. I'd be hard-pressed to pay more than $5 to watch it.
