This is a very funny homage to the original series, with cameos from two of the stars.

I found myself laughing out loud with the large audience of an early afternoon screening.

The humour is lowbrow and liberally peppered with innuendo and expletives but of very good quality and in proportion.

The original series put the characters into ridiculous situations and the film builds on that tradition, with a beautiful evil villain, off-the-shelf henchmen and improbable heroes.

Fans of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will not be disappointed by the stunt work. It is not on the sane scale as his other recent films but fits this story very appropriately.

All said, a very satisfying four out of five stars from me.

Currently showing at Guildford Odeon.
