Hit & Run

(R) ★☆☆☆☆

Co-director and writer Dax Shepard of Punked and Parenthood turns in this weak attempt at throw back, automobile-driven time-killers such as The Cannonball Run. It fails miserably. Charlie (Shepard) is a reformed robbery getaway driver living in rural California with his girlfriend, Annie (Kristen Bell). They hit the road to get Annie to LA for a job, but they’re pursued by Annie’s ex and Charlie’s former cohorts. It’s more of the over-the-top comedic violence that’s awful. Even the car chases are stale.

(R) ★☆☆☆☆ This overblown action-star reunion pic is all good fun and games, but it also reaches and exceeds the Maximum Mayhem Threshold to become a wise-cracking cavalcade of carnage. Barney Ross (Stallone) and his team (which includes Statham, Couture, Lundgren, Li, Liam Hemsworth, etc.) take their soldier-for-hire thing to Nepal to battle countless henchman, Jean Vilain (Van Damme) and spy boss Bruce Willis. It’s pretty ridiculous, especially once Chuck Norris shows up.
