Brash, brutal and smart enough to wink at the audience, Boss Level is a gratuitously bloody popcorner that never pushes the boundaries of the action idiom, but should please genre-savvy fans just the same.

The sentimentality is as rote as the movie's '80s lunchbox nostalgia.

If the cast is above average, so is some of the humour, although dark doesn't quite describe it. Dark and red might be closer.

Proving there is no idea so good it can't be improved by adding more explosions and car chases.
