Fresh in from Texas, Superdad Owen Wilson and the family arrive “somewhere in Asia” just in time to celebrate Kill All Americans Day. Fine sleight of hand work on the pre-credit sequence promptly sails headlong into a Xenophobic, effects-laden thrill ride, minus the superhero costumes. Pierce Brosnan, in a brief but pivotal stint, is assigned three lines of “significant” dialogue that place blame for the wholesale slaughter squarely on the backs of corporate America. Lake Bell, in the role of misled mom, excels at shielding the children’s eyes. Apart from that, director John Erick Dowdle (Devil) seems content to stack as many corpses as possible. Barely a chuckle in the piece, unless one accounts for a rough patch of screen direction: Roger Corman could have churned out two features in the time it takes the bad guys to walk from one side of the roof to the other.
