A cheerfully amoral movie that cannily caters to and satirizes our passion for cinematic violence.

Manages to be highly entertaining and sanctions all its violence by making the bad guys so despicable that death seems to be the only solution.

What this sequel delivers is still the kind of high-speed roller-coaster action that producer Joel Silver's films often do so well.

They know what they're doing and how to do it, but we miss the sense of invention that brightened the earlier movies.

If there's an original moment in this movie, producer Joel Silver and director Richard Donner sincerely apologize.

Yes, there is a shot of Mel Gibson's bum, and, no, director-producer Richard Donner still hasn't learned the first thing about directing action so that it has any coherence or beauty.
