Its only a "B" because it excelled at what it was suppossed to be, a no brainer action car flick. It delivered what the ads said it would be about and didn't pretend to be anything more. A few cheesy lines, but not overly done like Mummy 3, and one bad monologue from Joan Allens character Hennessy keep me from taking it higher.

Its an entertaining enough movie and if I didn't have free passes wouldn't have gone other wise. I'd have Netflixed it and that may just be the best place for this.

Its fun, just not $10 justifiable fun.
Sounds good and pretty much what I expected. I'll likely see it this weekend on a $5 ticket price.
