All Critics (3) unusually tedious chase movie...

January 21, 2008 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

just a dumb little car chase movie

October 9, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

...noteworthy mainly because a part of the deal to make it allowed Ron Howard the chance to direct his own next picture.
