The files, into which Nicky Parsons hacks, shows us that there are/were 10 Black Ops projects: 01. Iron Hand, 02. Spectrum, 03. Hourglass, 04. Rubicon, 05. Spearfish, 06. Larx, 07. Outcome, 08. Emerald Lane, 09. Blackbriar, 10. Treadstone. See more »
At the hacker site in Reykjavik, Iceland that Nicky uses to hack the CIA to download the black ops files, most of the other people appear to be talking German, instead of, as you would expect, Icelandic (or maybe English). As soon as the power gets cut there's general uproar and muttering (some of it may be Icelandic (?)) but the parts that can be heard clearly are German:
"[...] die Laufwerke!" "[...] sofort weg!" "Pack die Laufwerke ein!" "Bist du noch online? Was soll'n das?" "Nur mal die Ruhe!" "Spinnst du?" "Ganz ruhig!" See more »
Lacklustre story line lacking intelligence, dialogue, and character development.
I am a big fan of the franchise and my expectations may have been too high for this sequel. Was hoping for same kind of substance and kept waiting for something impressively unexpected, like previous. Legacy was a better film. Even fight scenes and car chases from all previous had a different "feel" than typical action films, but formula made these redundant and confusing, not fun like others. The predictable plot had me thinking, hoping for intelligent twist that did not happen. It's a good rental I suppose.
