saw this earlier tonight, it was mindless action fun.
just turn your brain off, ignore the impossible things that wouldn't happen in real life and enjoy. having said that I didn't enjoy it as much as I should, it's not one to take seriously.. that's not the problem I had. the problem was the cast, just found them annoying and a little miscast. Toni Collette, are you serious?! the Vampire Diaries chick was so annoying and trying to hard, the Aussie chick bugged me too and she talked too much. Tony Jaa was wasted, he can do really good stunts but it just looked like fake wire work with what he did. Donnie Yen was the highlight, makes me wanna watch his movies now. there was action, just not much of it for my liking... or explosions for that matter. did we really need this movie, did anyone ask for it?! it's been 15 years, less if you include the 2nd movie which they could have ignored but had to include.
it's was fine for what it was but forgettable, same goes for the first. I watched it again last week and have forgotten most of it.
