The inability to control the tone of a movie can be useful when making flashy, over-stylised Giallo, not so much if you're trying to create a thoughtful examination of the emotional fallout experienced by a double rape victim. Ignorant and unnecessarily cruel.

Doesn't quite scale the lunatic heights of Fast 5, though does make it clear that there will be a seventh. There has to be because Diesel and The Rock still haven't had sex with each other yet, an act that from the look of them would presumably sound like somebody trying to polish a leather sofa with a leather sofa.

Proffers an intriguing premise of time as currency which begins as an existential dialogue on agelessness & immortality before swiftly transforming into a study of the ramifications of redistribution of wealth. Well, it would like to think so, ultimately though it just ends up as some half-arsed Bonnie & Clyde shit.

The tables turn with some force as I enjoyed a frothy blend of Goonies, Critters and Dead Ringers whilst Charlotte vociferously complained about how the source material had been clumsily maimed, and I quote "This is stupid, everything's happening too fast and all the best stuff is missing".

A group of people, stranded in the middle of nowhere with no means of communication, are slowly picked off one by one by a deadly, unstoppable killer using various means of dispatch.
Only the killer is their hostile environment and in between deaths they ponder on the significance of life and survival so it's existential, see?

When I watched this as a youngster I thrilled at the fact that every joke was immediately followed by another in a non-stop litany of hilarity.
Now as an adult I find every joke is immediately followed by the child reporting on whether she got the joke or not and then rating how funny it was. The film felt much longer this time round.
