Review: Aside from the occasional really fun demon-murder sequences (see spitting bullets, quarry machine hell-steed), I was largely unimpressed. And I’m easy to impress with a fire demon that can kill with a chain. But the biggest disappointment was the fact that you can have Idris Elba in an action movie and have it still suck. Like many things, he loses some appeal when he’s French.
Time: 17 seconds
