It's entirely enjoyable. Classically bad but in a fun way. There is a lot of parkour which is always great to see. The movie moves along at a very fast pace so you never have to sit too long with the ridiculousness of anything. There is enough sincerity in the acting and story at the right moments to keep you from totally hating the movie even when you know it's not exactly great. It's a fun action movie. Let yourself like it. As far as Jake G in the main role he does a perfectly competent job. His role here gets brought up sometimes as an example of "whitewashing" where actors are cast as characters of an obviously different ethnicity then what the actor playing the character is...But I would think that is more the director's fault then his. I think he suited the role just fine, and given that his character is an adopted son his obviously different ethnicity then the rest of his family is forgivable in my mind. But if that kind of stuff puts you off this might not be the movie for you.

I really enjoyed this movie and I'm not really a Jake G. fan, to speak of. I realize the "critics" panned it, but the ancient Persian parkour was outstanding and the story endearing. Would see it a second time.

Rather flat and not very engaging. PG-13 rating with a scene joking about suicidal tendencies seem off. There were other things that should've been taken out for that rating. They must've said Dustan's name easily 100 times - often 3 times in a few sentences. Became incredibly annoying! Did Jake have an identity crisis?

Exciting and fun movie to watch. I liked that the story was not altogether predictable. The ending was not cheesy like I read, and it ended well. Great job for disney!
