Gemma Arterton is one of the finest young British actresses around at the moment (along with Sheridan Smith), so every part of my being wants to give this film a raving review and commend her for her beautiful performance and range; but alas I cannot. What we have here is a hot mess of a movie, it features awful over the top performances, awkward CGI, and a bizarre concept that just doesn't work. Maybe they were going for this zany kind of a movie, but unfortunately it turned out to be a disaster.
Do you see what I mean when I say this film is a bizarre concept, it sounds like it should be a SyFy TV movie, it's that bad. Arterton gives a convincing American accent and I guess does what she can with the script provided, and Renner suffers a massive blow to his ego; especially after the glory days of last years Blockbuster, Avengers Assemble. The script is cheesy and dated, the acting is hammy (especially Janssen), and the visual effects look like they have been done by a high school student in an ICT lesson. All in all it's a cinematic disaster, but my love for the lovely Ms Arterton has given it an extra star.
