A slow start, a single star performance surrounded by indifferent acting and an onslaught of computer effects that range from seen-it-all-in-Transformers to a whole sky full of spectacular stuff in the midtown Manhattan climax.

The reception scene said to take place in Stuttgart, Germany, was clearly filmed in the U.S. (Cleveland, in fact) There are no such skyscraper buildings in Stuttgart as seen in the background. All S-Class Mercedeses shown are U.S.-spec-models, easily recognizable by the yellow front side marker lights. Furthermore, K?nigstrasse is mainly a shopping street, and K?nigstrasse 22, in particular, is a shopping arcade containing, among a dozen shops, two cinemas. There is no building in the vicinity higher than half a dozen floors, and K?nigstrasse 22 opens on the street, not on a square. Furthermore, Stuttgart has no elevated trains, which can be seen in the background of the square scene.
