Reviews

Empire Magazine

Nick de Semlyen

Gleefully piles on the implausibilities. So we get a comedy double-act between Caine and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson — as effectively bizarre a match-up as Arnie and DeVito — which sees them antagonistically call each other “Mary Poppins” and “Sasquatch”.

A manufactured Hollywood product without wit or originality.

Nicholas Barber

The heroes' encyclopedic knowledge [that] wins the day as opposed to the customary brute strength and ignorance.

Philip French

It resembles King Kong written by Enid Blyton for undemanding children, though Blyton would have disapproved of the philistine way Johnson tears the maps out of his stepson's books.

It’s probably best recommended to those who need to see Michael Caine mounting a giant bee.

Kate Muir

Michael Caine [is] the grandfather, giving an appallingly lazy performance that says: “I took the cheque.”

Do not adjust your 3D specs as you watch grandfather Michael Caine riding a giant bee: this isn't even a dream sequence.
