Could be the best-paced action film I’ve ever seen. Don’t try to understand the plot – it serves only to marshal disparate groups of bad guys in pursuit of a little girl with an eidetic memory. It lets you catch your breath in just the right places, limits the obligatory car-chase scene to a (for me) manageable length, and, after allowing the hero to overcome unimaginable odds, handles the (also obligatory) final mano-a-mano between the arch rivals in a surprising, amusing, and fist-pumpingly wonderful way.
