My Thoughts

I liked this film. If you saw the first one and liked it you should obviously go and see this. If you haven’t seen the first film you should watch it before you see this, as unlike some films that you can jump in and out of, the first film has a lot of information to offer as to whom is who and why, otherwise there might be a lot of things you won’t understand. With an action packed star studded cast including; Colin Firth, Channing Tatum, Julianne Moore and Halle Berry, to name a few. The film has plenty of well choreographed kick ass stunt work, along with a heap of witty remarks and some comedy….a la Elton John. I advise not to see this late at night as it is quite long. Go to see this film if you are in the mood to zone out and join in on a fun action filled 2 hours and 21 minutes.
