This could have been a captivating adventure about the extremes of masculinity and megalomania. The themes are all there. Daring mortality for delusions of immortality. And there are spectacular moments on the waves and along the cliffs. But shallow characterization deflates the tragic dimension, the only thing that can sustain and justify a movie like this. Some of the action scenes are beyond ludicrous; they 'jump the shark', making the feats seem more fanciful than mad. And the damn tattoos. Maybe getting more than one tattoo should be a capital crime. Enough already.
