A little John Wick; a little Taken. A little Zack Snyder; a little Guy Ritchie.
The whole thing feels cliche and wrote yet somehow it's new and fresh... and entertaining as hell.
Good, clean family fare.

EDIT/ADD-ON: Now that I think about it, I think what I liked about this movie is that it's a live action PG-movie for mostly everyone. When I was a kid, I went to these types of movies ALL THE TIME (The Goonies, Hello Again, The Great Outdoors, Back to the Future, Secret of My Success, Big, Annie, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Harry and the Hendersons, Karate Kid, Twins, Crocodile Dundee, Look…
Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.
The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
