When it picked up right at the end of the last one I was hooked straight through. Robert Downey Jr. plays another masterfully eccentric and narcissistic rich boy superhero to a T. Nice to see him back working strong along with ole Mickey Rourke. Both are fantastic acting comebacks.
This movie is what it is. If you liked the first one then this is just a mere extension of that. Add in the Avernger crossover and the plot begins to wash into a piss warm bath. Not as exciting as the first but hardly much different.
Special FX were great straight from the beginning all the way to the end. Twist turns and some added Avenger plotline made the story pretty engaging on first view. This is a great big screen blockbuster movie and deserves all the praise anyone wants to give it. In the end it falls short of what it could have been due to a darty plotline.

When I say things like Desperado and From Dusk Till Dawn, if it makes you perk up and listen then you've found the right movie. This once predictable bad guy typecast becomes the lead in Machete. This year?s summer gore fest continues with violent scenes any diehard action movie fan would love. The grind house formula worked and this movie is another decent summer flick.

I was delightfully surprised at how stylish this movie came off. The way the movie was shot and the feel of the directing was really well done. That said the rest of the movie was shit. It meandered along at a stop and go pace and stretched the story so thin I had lost interest half way through. However stylish this move is it lacks attention to pacing for sure that makes it drag in parts it should be picking up.

I laughed I cried. But I mostly cried to see Bruce in another crappy slap shtick movie. I mean Hudson Hawk was enough buddy. Brian Fellows err I mean Tracy Morgan is Bruce Willis' sidekick partner in crime. This movie suffers from the same formulaic problems with all cliché?d cop comedies. Tracy Morgan can be funny at times but the pairing made for a slow slow slow movie.
