Gunmen (1994)

MPAA Rating: R

Details Movie Rated: R; Genres: Action/Adventure, Mystery and Thriller; With: Christopher Lambert and Mario Van Peebles

Chortle as Mario Van Peebles essays his standard-issue postmodern Philip Michael Thomas for the thousandth time! As treasure-seeking thrillers go, Gunmen is fraught with action and incident. Sure, you're likely to forget the whole thing before you've finished rewinding, but that's entertainment. B-
