Fantastically-stupid action movie, loads of fun for any age
My whole family has seen this movie, we all liked it for what it was.
It's not gonna win any awards, there are some hilarious goofs, but for an almost comic-book- like action movie with an insanely ridiculous plot, some fun characters, great action, and that special brand of B movie humor that festers in old action movies and horror movies, it's a great 2 hours for all ages.
Think of the film RED with slightly younger people- and Bruce Willis and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (yes I have to say it all): there are guns of all shapes and sizes, some incredible explosions, London is leveled (take that Dark Knight Rises, you nancy betch) and everything is so ridiculous it works.
So what if there are flashbacks to Stormshadow's childhood with Zartan in his 50s? So what if the climax makes no sense? (the idea is still fantastic) ... and I liked how the main dude from the first movie died in the beginning, it upped the stakes!
It's BETTER than the first one! You know how many sequels can say that? Maybe the Underworld series, maybe Pirates of the Caribbean (not including/considering the fourth one) but thats it.
The first one wasn't even bad. Again, maybe stupid, but not bad, the idea of disintegrating Paris was great, right? And yeah, cheesy acting, its a G I Joe thing! If you liked the first one, this one is better.
