ODs on mindless crash-boom-bang exploits and leans heavily on warmed-over slo-mo stunts, leaving little room for an interesting story. So, just say no to drugs ... and this movie.

It's no sin to try too hard. But in Formula 51, the effort shows. And in breezy, bloody, offhand action comedies, that's a cardinal sin.

Abnormal amounts of blood, bullets and wanton bodily functions could put the ill on some unsuspecting viewers.

This "Formula" is missing some key ingredients - like plot, characters, and dialogue.

A kilted Jackson is an unsettling sight, and indicative of his, if you will, out-of-kilter character, who rambles aimlessly through ill-conceived action pieces.

Ridiculous, dispiriting and ... coarse.

An execrable mess that leaves no genre cliche unturned or human body or soul untrammeled.

None of this makes a lick of sense, and the appalling unfunny story goes from bad to worse.

All the insufferable antics being put forth (thoughtless racial jokes, forced catch phrases, canned hilarity, superficial frivolity, pointless plotlines) conjure up a steady derivative formula of nonsense with the tasty acceptance of sour skim milk.

It has the requisite flash and profane dialogue that movie audiences seem to like these days, but very little else.

Just as the lousy Tarantino imitations have subsided, here comes the first lousy Guy Ritchie imitation.

Elmo touts his drug as being 51 times stronger than coke. If you're looking for a tale of Brits behaving badly, watch Snatch again. It's 51 times better than this.

(Director Ronnie) Yu puts minimal effort into staging flavorless, slow-motion, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink action sequences that feel about as fresh as a microwave dinner.
