Forced...

The characters and jokes seem forced... The special agent seems to be written to be kooky, but is nothing like the spectacular character Defoe played, and comes across as annoying. Almost bad enough to be laughable - hard to watch.The plot does not seem to be cohesive. A very few characters in the movie come across as believable - many say their lines, but the words sound odd... I am working hard to write anything else about this movie to make ten lines since I really thought it was awful and there are only so many ways you can talk about how terrible the lines, characters and lack of plot are. I am rarely a fan of sequels and this movie proves exactly why I am hesitant to watch subsequent offerings on good movies.

A perfectly good sequel. Clever, a lot of fun, and frigg'n Hilarious! Rewatchability: Very High Blu-ray: Stunning A:10 V:10

Sure, a lot of people here pi$$ all over this film because it ISN'T the original... Okay, fine... BUT, let's be realistic. Just exactly HOW many sequels, especially sequels to outright Classics like this one, ever come any where NEAR close to the quality of the first one...? Exactly... Take the awesome film 'GET SHORTY'. Now, if you have had the tragic misfortune to see the horrendous 'sequel' 'BE COOL', then you know PRECISELY what I mean. This film here is not even in the same UNIVERSE as that atrocious sequel as far as genuine quality and the clever thought that clearly went into it.

Anyway, what I mean is that the first film is SO completely iconic that just about ANY attempt at a sequel will be bound to disappoint many people. I very much liked the Ultra-Coolness of the first film, and I found this one to be VERY entertaining and funny as Hell. Yes, I think this film leaned more strongly toward direct humour than the original, BUT... I personally felt that most of the humour worked just fine, despite some of it being rather obvious.

Romeo was great. I loved his reaction to the constant barrage of racial slurs that came his way. Honestly, I thought that there was some pretty clever writing in a lot of the humour. Like when the guys were making fun of his rather 'Gaudy' car, saying that he had claimed that his car was inconspicuous. He answers, 'I don't like any words with 'spic' in the middle...' I know, I know... Corny as Hell, BUT... :) And YES, Judd Nelson seriously overdid it with his role (and I frigg'n LOVE Judd Nelson!) Personally, I think that rather than trying to come across as a character SO far removed from his usual style, if he had just played it WAY more laid-back and with his usual brand of Snarky-Cool, I really think that it would have gone over a LOT better than trying to force the characterization that he was trying to do.

I suppose you could say that the stratospheric heights of 'Cool' that were in the first film are missing here. But, I think that the film makers really tried hard to come up with something that, YES, relies much more heavily on various forms of obvious humour, but I feel is genuinely VERY entertaining overall. There were also some pretty slick sequences, as even haters here will admit. And, Bill Connolly's back-story is quite intriguing and fits well with the story.

Honestly, I really, ***REALLY*** liked the film. I thought it was a frigg'n Blast! The characters were not quite as iconic as in the first film, but considering what they had to try to match, I truly feel that they came up with a film that was very entertaining, VERY funny, and had enough cleverness throughout it to relate quite well to it's Cult predecessor.

Just ONE thing, at least to me, that REALLY sucked Donkey Balls was the bland, generic, mind-numbingly boring song in the closing credits. That's it... The rest of the soundtrack was awesome.

My take on it is that IF you liked the first film and you are NOT too terribly harsh and unreasonably expectant with this one, I honestly feel that you could very well find this movie quite funny and entertaining...

"Let's do some gratuitous violence."

Well this was pretty terrible, granted it had its moments but they were few and far between. I'm not sure what this movie was trying to be exactly, a comedy what with the antics and ridiculous dialogue of the three stooges cops routine, a fantasy, a stylized shootout movie? It's a violent trigger happy ride whatever the case.

Ultimately I barely made it through this which was so disappointing after the cult classic awesomeness of the first movie. I did enjoy Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery and some of the shootout scenes are well stylized and cool looking (Billy Connolly) but with the plot being more of an afterthought than anything else this just ended up feeling disjointed, unoriginal, absurd and over-the-top.

The storyline (as it were) follows the MacManus brothers who return to Boston to take on the mob after a local priest is killed in cold blood and left with all the distinguishing trademarks of a Macmanus hit. With the blame falling on the brothers they are out for bloody justice.

Special shout out to Judd Nelson who brings a whole new meaning to overacting. Just terrible. And I also had to laugh at the endless talk of forced bum humping and cock sandwiches. Mentioned so many times and in so many different ways it was like homophobic overcompensation for what they actually wanted. Anyways... 6/9/15
