Early 30s is more realistic than 20s if he's a test pilot. Those guys have usually made their bones with several years of combat flying to prove and earn the right. [And no, Trey, I don't mean that...

That's what I did with The Force Awakens--saw it like a year later on Netflix (and then wish I hadn't). I'm also like that with the Avengers cycle stuff from Marvel. I'm burned out on that. I still...

I feel like I've heard the "in the vein of Lethal Weapon" several times before and it never seems to actually capture that flavor. So, now it makes me pause.

Anyway, Martin Campbell had also done Legend of Zorro, so it's not like he was Martin Scorcese or something.
