After loving the first installment, this was just so, so disappointing. The first film was flash but not too flash- walking that tightrope of fabulous to solid plot but remaining coherent with characters we could really dig.
Not this film. This film falls off the tight rope and right into the sun.
Don't get me started on all of the character development that doesn't happen, blatant inconsistencies and just plain WTF? of this lazy, lazy script.
I wont do more than mention the overdose of swaggering Americana- and I do mean Over Dose. (All of the US agents come off as hackneyed fools- except Halle Berry, and the whole movie you're thinking, "when will Halle get to DO something? Why the heck is she even IN this movie?")
I wont do more than say that Colin Frith just looked extremely annoyed the whole movie, like he'd rather be anywhere else - and you can tell why. None of the actors were used to their potential. None. (For that matter neither was the story line.)
The action sequences were not even that great, more cobbled together and repetitive, and the one or two good scenes couldn't make me stop just WISHING IT WOULD JUST END.
I left the theatre depressed over what could have been and totally was not.
