Notes From The Underground
29 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

* the original was not merely a great film, it was a one-of-a-kind, with no analog or precedent or imitation. I think I rated it a 12 on IMDb (no mean feat since the ratings only go up to 10)

* I suppose -- and I am not happy about making this concession -- that if anyone on this sorry planet has the right to destroy the original by making a sequel which is so weak that it borders on caricature (worse, it suggests that the greatness of the original was accidental) it would be Rodriguez and Miller. And that's just what they did.

* To say that Jessica Alba reprised her role from the original would be to mis-use the word "reprise." She best resembled an animated giff file.

* leaving aside the terrible script, a script lacking even a hint of the nuance of the original, it bears remembering that the incredible Bruce Willis is not merely a major star on his own, he is (check the IMDb) an accomplished voice actor too. Therefore, the attempt to fill his shoes (er... narration track) with Josh Brolin is painfully uncomfortable from the start, and only gets worse as time goes on.

* the only one having any fun here is Mickey Rourke, and I suspect that is because, unlike you and I, he is getting paid for this involvement.
