Dwayne Johnson tries, but he’s surrounded by poor CGI and a terrible adaptation of yet another comic book. Ian McShane steals what little movie there…

I was blown away by Spike Lee's "Inside Man." I spent the whole movie trying to figure out what sort of "Gotcha" moment he had in store for us, and I never caught on until he wanted us to. Also, as soon as the Nazi finance angle came in, I thought of Prescott Bush. Then, in Christopher Plummer's office, there was a picture of the Bush family on the credenza behind Plummer's desk. There was also one of Plummer with Maggie Thatcher (we're close), but I digress.
After the movie, I got to thinking about how Prescott's son was elected vice president and president, and his grandson was elected president twice, despite the fact that the family got rich from helping finance the Nazi war machine. Would Christopher Plummer really have to worry about consequences in the real world, when it seems that war crimes committed by the rich and powerful don't?
