If Only


If Only there was massive talent involved then the title would be appropriate.

Full review

It is almost a meta-film about the film industry, but mostly its just another excuse for some action sequences involving cars and guns and jumping off cliffs etc. Once he gets to the island it starts off on a wisecracking buddy track as Nick and Javi circle around each other, but sadly it declines into a routine 'straight-to-video' (or nowadays straight-to-streaming) flic of no great value.

It is entertaining in parts, but there's more than a touch of misogyny in the treatment of the female parts, and the cartoon CIA operatives and black clad baddies are risible. Not quite unbearable but pretty ponderous.
