Road Ripping

Yeah, the movie doesn’t hold together. But those action set pieces — gawdamn, they are tight. I watched this one again a few weeks ago and wished any contemporary movie had something like that. It helps that 70% of the effects there are practical — those bricks* really are falling, those cars really are bouncing as the road heaves, that water really is gushing into the sky.

*Could be fake, lightweight bricks, but it’s not CGI is my point.
