Did You Know?

Goofs

At one point, near the beginning of the movie, there is a very short outside view of a building. The movie labels it as the "Texas Police Department", but pausing the movie or looking closely you can see that above the the door, to the right of the garage exit, it says "L A P D" in big, white lettering. It looks like the scene was taken from another movie, "Blue Streak", with Martin Lawrence. See more »

Way Better!
5 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very simply - if you liked the first, you should like this one, it's got more violence, more vulgarity, more plot, and more Kevin Sorbo - to put it another way, it's just way better.

In relation to the first movie - Kevin Sorbo seems like a much more down-to-earth, everyday hero, not a cartoonish superhero; A.J. Buckley is a more down-to-earth, everyday villain, not a cartoonish supervillain. The motive for revenge is better and more believable, a bit more than someone sold drugs to a kid. Sorbo (and everyone else) has more experience acting than The Rock (not that I don't like The Rock), and it shows.

There are a lot of negative reviews for this movie but for the life of me I don't know why. Ignore them, take this simple advice - if you liked the first movie, watch this. If you liked Payback, watch this. If you liked The Brave One, watch this. If you like revenge movies, watch this. If you like Kevin Sorbo, watch this. If none of those apply, skip this movie, and spare it another unfair negative review.
