A stronger focus on story and tone and less reliance on the marvels of CGI might have made this latest version of "The Call of the Wild" a more fruitful experience.

The biggest shock of this new movie re-imagination is that it makes the cheesy TV series seem fresh and smart by comparison.

Director: Jeff Baena

Most will find it strange, inert, and confounding.

A glorious, hyperkinetic mess and, although it never quite takes flight, it at least holds the attention.

Spy action-thrillers are supposed to be fun on some level but this one is too much of a chore to properly entertain.

The overpolished screenplay and overuse of directorial flourishes hamper the viewer’s enjoyment of what should have been a pretty straightforward caper-style crime film.

It’s more of the same: Violence-saturated eye candy used to buff Smith’s ego and inflate his bank account.

Will likely satisfy audiences who go in with appropriately established expectations because, for what it is, the film is solidly entertaining.
