Plot Recycling For The Short Attention Span Crowd.
Lots of action here, although they do cheat a lot with Neeson's fight scenes, speeding them up to near visual imperceptivity. Guess that stems from his old age, yet still relatively youthful appearance. Anyway, who in their right mind would criticize the man who spoke those epic film words: "Release the Kraken?" This isn't a bad movie, it's just pretty much the same movie as its namesake. The first one worked well, so guess they must have figured, "why fix it if it ain't broke." This movie's good for a two hour respite from reality, provided of course your life's absent high speed car chases, excessive brutal physical and gun violence, and the seemingly loving yet comically unbroken..broken marriage. It should follow that leaving the kiddies home for this one is advised. Otherwise, see it. It's worth its ticket price.
