Okay, those two bits were good. But that was the problem with the movie. It has several good moments, but as a movie as a whole, it sucked.
I found that enjoying it solely on the merit of a "popcorn" action movie was quite satisfying.
Hey, you know, I bet that guy who played the Professor, if somewhat younger, could play that captain in "The Buried Age."
(Sorry, I couldn't resist.)
