I actually really like this movie. It was pretty awesome. The two train sequences alone are worth the view.

This movie was really enjoyable. It got a bad rap, but it didn't deserve it. It was certainly better than a lot of other genre flicks. Prometheus and Pacific Rim for example. Those movies were turds compared to TLR.

I totally forgot this film still exists.

Just like how i forget that Adam Sandler "comedies" exist.

From what I hear there's still sequel discussion. I definitely think entertainment wise it was no worse than your typical Pirates sequel.

Why so mutch CGI? They filmed in location and remade the location in CGI? And that final train fall in CGI was lame. That was constructed 2 entire real trains for the movie! Why they dont't throw one of them of the cliff?
