At one point Terrence Howard’s character compares another to a comic strip character. That was unintentionally apt, as no character in this film has any discernible depth. Cuba Gooding is pointless, having more facial expressions than lines. The credits are plastered annoyingly over the opening action sequence (probably the best in the film.) A lack of interest in any of the characters dissolves any tension future action scenes might have, especially with the truly awful dialog breaking up every single dogfight.
