      Anderson Jones Detroit Free Press Wayans has been paid. But as someone who knows all about the constrictions of pigeonholing, he should be ashamed. Rated: 2/4 Apr 26, 2022 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: C Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Brian Lowry Variety In terms of action, Wayans the director relies too much on slow-motion in shooting action scenes -- a tiresome habit that undercuts the potential excitement of some sequences. Jul 25, 2008 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot Stealing the film, though, is the sassy, witty and always loud Jada Pinkett... Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 10, 2022 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Wayans can be funny, but an action hero he is not. Jul 20, 2018 Full Review TV Guide Wayans the screenwriter is largely to blame for the film's shortcomings, but Wayans the director does a solid job.
