I saw this a while ago and I didn't hate it nearly as much as you guys. Plus, on a superficial level, it is nice to watch. I remember the scene where they fight each other and destroy the house is pretty awesome too.
As big budget summer blockbuster fare, it works. And there's no denying the on-screen chemistry Pitt & Jolie have here. It seems like most here were asking way too much from a big, mindless action film.
