Actually the agents are told to remove any device that emits a radio signal so they can not be located based on signal triangulation so video conferencing is logical. What isn't logical is that they are underground in a bunker within the bar yet they are using hand held radios to communicate with the agents outside the bar. See more »

Better than the first, yet not that good...watchable
I picked the first movie only because it had Ryan Reynolds in the lead. If the movie had a lot of shooting action, lots of characters and a bigger budget, the story was a mess and i really didn't like it.
I picked this one, now who knows why, i guess because i kinda like Vinnie Jones, even if he is mostly hit or miss, as in sometimes he steal the show, other times he just has a small part and don't do much.
I would say the movie is a lot better in term of story. It does not waste time too much on a million side characters and the main story is fluid and all. The action lack a bit tough in that one, surprisingly.
The new characters are cool but i felt some of them where wasted past there introduction. I would had like to see a lot more of them.
In any case a decent DTV release, nothing impressive tough, if you don't watch much movies i suggest you really pass this one, but if you are like me watching 10+ movies a week, and you can get it at a pawnshop.. then why not?
I give it a 6 on 10 on my personal review chart, as it gave me a decent time, but did not impress me in any mean, so just a bit above the "par". But by IMDb standard and the weird rating of the peoples here, i would say a 4...
