When Heller first calls Nick in the ambulance, Nick is wearing gloves. When we see the closeup of the phone, the gloves are gone. When the camera goes back to showing Nick, the gloves are back. See more »
I didn't much care for the first "12 Rounds" movie, finding it flat and not very exciting. So when I sat down to watch this next entry, I was expecting it to be even worse than the original movie. But I have to admit that I was surprised. Yes, this sequel does have some problems, not just with the awkward title imposed on the front of the Blu-ray box ("12 Rounds 2"????) The main problem with this movie is that a lot of key linking footage, as well as entire scenes, seem to be missing here and there. Also, the ending is kind of abrupt. Still, there's a lot to enjoy here. The production values are generally pretty good for a movie that bypassed theaters. Randy Orton, though not a great actor, does seem to be trying, and he makes his character sympathetic enough. The main selling point of the movie is its relentlessness - once the crisis starts, there's barely a lull in the action and intensity. I'm not saying that this movie is a GREAT movie, but you'll likely find it better than you might be expecting, and it passes its 94 minutes with a certain briskness.
