I enjoyed it. Explosions, over the top sword fights, wild gadgets, explosions, more over the top action sequences - (sword battle on wires on a CLIFF! Oh yea! High five that one stunt guys. LOL.) Evil villany, bad guy double trickery, explosions, tanks ... oh.. and Bruce Willis. :)

Have a few drinks, don't take the brain. Not that I had any problems with the plot - but really, sword fight on a cliff?

Only one problem. THEY BLEW UP LONDON!!!!!!!!!!!! Not a spoiler. It was in the trailer. But still! *sobs* You all should know how much I love London. You can't blow up London!!!!

I really enjoyed Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. And him and Bruce. LOL. Though why replace Channing Tatum? He wasn't bad in the 1st movie. And his friendship with the Rock at the beginning was great. They had good chemistry - you could see them as friends.

Not worth 3D (come on guys - what's with all this 'after conversions'). A few funky problems in converting. And speaking of problems converting - I saw LOTS of 'glitches' and weird perspective in The Great Gatsby trailer.

Like I said, I enjoyed it - but during tax season - I'm easy to please with action flicks. Entertaining. Yes. Did my brain hurt? no.

he was AWFUL in the first movie. :| AWFUL. He's such a Bro and that doesn't fit the character. They played fast and loose with the characters anyway, but he really pushed my buttons because he wasn't Duke at all.

the only good things about the first movie were the ninjas. they were spot on with storm shadow and snake-eyes.

Hopefully i can manage to go see it this weekend when i work off some of this major jetlag. x_o
