1.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly dull, 2 Feb 2007
Looking forward to seeing this with mates, a take away and a few beers. A real let down. I think three things are needed for a great action film, 1). The plot can be far fetched provided it consistent and you don't need to have action all the way through - think the original Die Hard here (It's ages before Bruce kills anyone). 2) Humour, if you are going to have action almost non-stop then humour helps a lot (Bad Boys) or 3). Just plain non-stop action with amazing stunts (District 13).

This doesn't have any of these, the plot just isn't consistent even if you buy into the whole Beijing cocktail thing. Characters just appear in the scenes from no-where, how did they get there… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Soo boring, 23 Aug 2006

I was brought one of these by my work a couple of months ago and it is the best computer I have ever used. It hasn't crashed yet (my Windows PC was crashing daily) and although the Mac OS took a while to get used to it is far superior to windows and far more intutive. Dashboard and the Mighty Mouse are both excellent as well.

Oh and it looks so cool!

Everyone should buy one.
