Its combination of good pacing and a willingness to tell a story remind us of what summer movies once were.

This film’s tone is so inconsistent as to cause whiplash and it frequently substitutes emotional manipulation for intelligence.

This waterlogged product is an example of lazy writing and direction with a vague hope that perhaps the involvement of The Rock will attract viewers.

At its best, it feels like an echo of its predecessor. At its worst, it’s unfunny, crass, and uncomfortable (not in a good way).

Harrowing, compelling cinema - perhaps not as wrenching as "12 Years a Slave" but not far removed.
