Not That Great! 2/10
20 December 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: I lost interest in this film from the get go! The movie looked cheap and extremely dated and I wasn't impressed with the action. Its about a robot which has been made to be the ultimate fighting machine but when it gets stolen from an exhibition by a computer hacker, a group of young cops, who were hired to protect the machine, fight to save the world. One of there fellow cops are drugged and used against the cops so the head of the FBI agents, Ian Curtis (Paul Rudd), attempts to get back the robot and kill the agent who has turned to the darkside. The young undercover cops manage to find out that there fellow agent has been drugged so they try to prove his innocence by getting back the robot, there own way, whilst fighting against the hackers, who have different plans for the robot. Personally, I didn't find the comedic scenes that funny and the gun tooting cops weren't that interesting. The robot looked ridiculous, especially towards the end but on the plus side, it's quite short so I didn't have to put up with the movie that long. I wasn't a big fan of the first movie because it seemed a bit messy and this film isn't much better. The trendy young cops just didn't seem to take the whole situation that seriously, even though there is a lethal robot on the lose, so I have to give this movie the thumbs down. Disappointing!

Round-Up: Starring a young Paul Rudd, who looked uncomfortable throughout the movie, this, supposed to be, action movie wasn't that great and the scenes with Paul Rudd made me laugh because of were he is today. This film was directed by Benny Chan, who brought you the first movie in this franchise along with Who Am I?, New Police Story, Divergence, Robin-B-Hood and the great Shaolin. This movie would have been much better if it didn't have so much comedic content, which wasn't written that well and it feels like I'm beginning to sound like a broken record because I have said the same thing about a lot of the movies that I have seen recently. Anyway, this film was produced by Jackie Chan, who also produced the first movie and you can see that they used his style of action during the fighting scenes. Its just a shame that the movie wasn't that great!

I recommend this movie to people who are into their action/sci-fi movies starring Paul Rudd, Mark Hicks, Edison Chen and Stephen Fund. 2/10
