Multiple problems with this movie. It really is next to impossible to take The Rock seriously as an actor for any fan or former fan of professional wrestling. Adrianne Palicki was put in this film for her good looks and that's all. Her character wasn't necessary at all. She didn't do much of anything during the whole film but get a hair sample from the supposed president. So let me get this straight, Snake Eyes is a pasty White guy? Lame! It was surprising that Channing Tatum wasn't in this film more than he was. This movie had a good storyline which I wasn't expecting. The action scenes weren't very suspenseful though. Watch this one as long as you don't have to pay too much to either buy or rent. 6/10
As far as action flicks go, this one is much better than the last. But there are some confusing and distracting elements in the plot that detracts from the overall movie. Another thing I expected was a bit more humor. Compared to the last movie Retaliation was all business.
For the action scenes alone I would have given this movie 4 stars, almost 5. But the side plots interrupted the flow of the movie without contributing in a meaningful way.
I didn't see the first one so I can't compare the two. The beginning of this DVD has you chose a side. I had no idea what it was asking and there was no explanation. Then when the movie started there were a series of people being captured or already arrested and no explanation as to whether they were the good guys or the bad guys. This was really annoying. As the movie progressed I got into it. Still not sure who to root for. But I really enjoyed and Bruce Willis is always fun to watch. I have been a fan of Adrianne Palicki since she was in the TV series Friday Night Lights. Some would say her role was not so big but it was. She was a co-star and was in every scene just about. She did a good job. So good guys vs the Cobra bad guys. Who do you think prevails in the end? This is a good watch so enjoy it.
This movie is about what you could expect from an action film. Bad guys take out the good guys, only a few are left, and than the good guys have to over take the bad guys (which,of course, happens). The action in this film is entertaining (I saw it in 3D), but it wasn't anything we haven't seen before. Bruce Willis was competent, Dwayne Johnson was about the same as every movie we've seen him in, and Adrianne Paliniki was better in Red Dawn. The shooting style was fine in 3D, but once again, there is nothing different in this movie.Fine for a popcorn flick, but I am sure there are better films to spend your money on.
