As usual the acting is not the greatest, but it doesn’t really matter, the story is actually pretty well written and made sense… or at least as much sense as it needed to. Of course there’s always going to be the ridiculous, over-the-top action sequences that could never happen in real life and the plot twists that would require precision that’s near impossible. But, with all that said, it still makes for an entertaining movie and solidifies the series as a money maker.
This pretty much echoes the sentiment of Bill Simmons and Adam Carolla on one of his recent podcasts. Bottom line, the acting sucks, the story is ridiculous and the action is over the top, but if you accept that going in, the movies are entertaining.
