Once again let down by the lack of quality 3D. Action was good but have seen better. About what I would expect from an average at best action movie. Dwayne Johnson has his moments but this is not one of them.

The Rock was great. Loved Bruce but I was upset about the death in beginning. The movie was too far away from the first. Wouldn't go and see it again probably wouldn't buy DVD.

WAAAYY better than the first one. This movie doesn’t take itself seriously and the actions scenes did not have so many camera tricks that it confuses you.
To bad this was not to worthy for 3D (I don’t know why all these companies film everything in 2D, then spend extra time and money to convert it back to 3D).
Character acting was just fine for this type of movie. Only a few stupid (one REALLY stupid) scene but the action makes up for it.
One more thing, action movies as long as this one tend to really feel long but this one didn’t because everything was satisfying (except for that one stupid scene).
7/10 (save your money and don’t go for 3D, or go all out and see it in AVX)

My 14 year old grandson and I saw this last night. I was somewhat entertained, there were several spots in it that I wasn't too crazy about....not content per se. It was timely, but still a 'formula' movie and I expected that. The cinematography was not the best. The 3D was 'off'. as it wasn't very pleasing to the eye. Before one particular (video playing scene) there was at least 10 seconds of dead screen. Other than that, Bruce Willis was, as always, entertaining in his too small role. The hidden weaponry was 'cliche' to say the least....I agree with the critics about the so-so rating. However, my grandson didn't move a muscle nor did he speak a word...a sign that he was thoroughly enjoying it! He said it was really good and he'd love to go see it again! And to see him happy....that was my only thrill!

Took my teen boys and a good time was had by all. Loved the first one. Second was good and like some of the new Joe's.
