Genius flashes past your very eyes
29 March 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In my eyes, silk 2 provided an outstandingly fun watch. I was thoroughly absorbed in the plot from start to finish. Set in Hawaii, Silk is the policewoman who singlehandedly takes on a ring of criminals cashing in via art-insurance/black-market scandal.

The illustrious criminal 'Mr Gish,' whose smooth talking antics are played to a tee by Jan Merlin, gets me every time.

But he doesn't stand a chance. Out to get him is Jenny 'Silk' Sleighton, a cop who has had more than her dose of tough times recently (and not without the aid of her compatriots the beautiful Holly and handsome Tony) who stand up and fight for whats right in this underworld of lies and fraudulent art-bandits.

All I needed, in order to know that I was going to enjoy this movie, was to see silk in the very beginning, determined to save a group of innocent people from terrorists holding them under siege.

Why? because (in Silk's words): 'crime doesn't pay'!

With grit determination we see Silk make a run for it past the baddies, smash the window and basically go in and shoot them all.

That is why I found this movie so absorbing and great to watch from the very outset.

She was like watching an elastic cat doing gymnastics and shooting all the baddies; Silk is a legend!

But when her partner can no longer follow the case of an old 'pal' (as a favor) any longer, silk takes over and it is non-stop actions-ville. We see explosions, car chases, and humor as well (the fun tourists - "Whats green and swims around in water"?) But most importantly, there is a meaningful plot; someone is stealing real artworks and destroying them for the insurance/black-market value and then lying to the public about the fraudulent copies. I was positively glued to my seat! Tony as a man with the courage to 'speak up' is introduced to Silk in a way where they can both join forces and get to the bottom of things.

So, if you like a movie that's worth a few laughs, hasn't an over-emphasis on realistically conveyed editing and with dialogue and stunts that leave you laughing until your shoelaces untie themselves, this is for you! Sit down with a bowl of popcorn or whatever you like and watch genius flash by your very eyes.
