Absolutely amazing! Gritty and yet at the same time horribly brutal. It can all pretty much be summed up with the death scene of the movies villian I can't say I have ever seen anything so beautifully filmed and yet so horrible. Kudo's to Urban and Heady who do a great job with their parts.
Typical movie in the Mike Judge genre quirky off beat characters in a real world environment where everything kind of falls apart. However, unlike some of his other films like Idiocracy or Office Space this one never quite catches fire comedically. Jason Bateman does his best but the other characters never quite get to the place where they endear themselves to the audience.
Bloodier second coming of this group of action stars and again it delivers exactly what it promisses. I would say it is a touch better then the first one possibly due to the absence of Mickey Rourke crying.
A lot about this movie works, in general it is pretty funny so since it is a comedy, the mission is more then half accomplished, also it has a lot of bite as a social commentary. The treatment of this girl based on rumour and speculation is pretty true to life and has a dark overtone that is reminiscent of some of the better biting teen satires like Heathers. Where it falls down is the tacked on happy ending because this girl loves eighties John Hughes movies the whole thing eventually winds up in the same manner and it so doesn't jibe with the rest of the movies tone. Still not bad.
