Goofs

At one point, the main character is using what seems like a monocular telescope to oversee the situation. The next shot confirms this when the screen shows as if you were looking through one. However, the device used is not a telescope, but a night vision monocular. Not only the model can be recognized (it's of "Yukon" brand), but also the 2nd (smaller) lens on the device, which is actually a IR emitter. Using this device at day will not allow to see very much. Moreover, the following shot of the telescope view should be green because thats what one sees when viewing in night vision. See more »

BIG Jump
4 August 2010 | by (Howell, MI USA) – See all my reviews

I was really hoping for something amazing after the first one, but this was just OK. David Belle is the founder of French parkour and unlike to the first one, he really didn't show much skill in this one. He did have one crazy jump though. Cyril Raffaelli also didn't show off his karate and wushu skills like the first. He did have a couple cool scenes though. Now the story is a little continued from the first, but very weak compared to the first. But they did add a lot of colorful characters in this one that I enjoyed. They all had their personal fighting style or action. The music in this film was pretty nice and worked well with the action. Now back to the story of the film. It is the same basic background like the first, but with a different bad guy. I guess you could say is it is pretty uneventful. All you really wait for is Belle or Raffaelli to do something cool. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy parts of the film, just not all of it.
