I had seen parts of this movie before, in a party. Well, I watched parts of it, and I added it to the list of movies to watch. I liked it (9 in 10 in IMDB). Not because of Eva Mendes (gorgeous) or because Nicholas Cage is a great actor. Both help, but the special effects make the movie still more interesting. The story is nothing great, but is good enough. At the end, I love when an action movie has humor, and there are some great scenes. Soon news on the sequel.
