TUES­DAY TROPIC THUN­DER

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, ELEVEN ★★

While shoot­ing a block­buster war film in Viet­nam, a cast of ego­cen­tric ac­tors be­comes en­gaged in a bat­tle with lo­cal drug lords. The per­form­ers think it’s all part of a show be­ing filmed with se­cret cam­eras, which only fur­ther en­rages the en­emy. De­spite an all-star cast of fun­ny­men – Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr – this high­con­cept, low-im­pact farce doesn’t quite stir up a per­fect storm of mirth. Good enough.
