Action: 3/3 + Comedy: 0.5/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Special Effects: 1/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 + Music: 1/1 = 8/10 or 80%.

While the film runs too long for it's own good it is also layered enough to never let one know what will happen next.

The eclectic cast all show their quality in their various …
