I smell muffins. Do you smell muffins?
Sure, we’ve all seen the time-loop narrative used countless times in comedy. But this is somewhat of an action movie with a humorous tone, and a surprisingly good leading man. The plot definitely drags, but it’s held together by a decently written story that was adapted well by the director. I was left wanting more action, but the fighting and death scenes were fairly exciting and well choreographed. There’s some quality camera work and special effects, but nothing overly impressive. If anyone deserves praise, though, it’s Frank Grillo. After this performance, I would love to start seeing him appear as a leading man in blockbuster action films. There might be 2 minutes of this movie that he’s not on screen. Also, I’m a huge Martin Riggs fan, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that Mel Gibson was solid as the main antagonist.
