However, as much of a silly kind of "B" movie it was - I thought it was coherent, witty, funny, the random sound effects were too funny, purposely having chicks running around naked throughout the movie made it even funnier. I like the fact that the movie didn't take itself seriously and yet still had a clear story line. Definitely nothing intellectual about it - but 100 times better than some similar movies with a ton of famous people (example: Behaving Badly)... This was entertaining! I liked it.

(au) wrote: The Two Jakes is an excellent sequel to an already brilliant Chinatown that was sorely dismissed because of the mighty expectations. When it started I thought that it was only a sequel because of the fact that the main character's name is the same and then I just said, it's a continuation of his life but this film connects to Chinatown quite a lot, a little more than I would have liked at first but it all unravels by the end to deliver a very interesting and well acted tale. I thought it was on par with Chinatown and it was written very well, I'm glad the original writer is back and I think that definitely helped keep the noir theme and tight storytelling intact. Jack Nicholson plays the character well and Harvey Keitel is great too. The cinematography was very nice and clean also. While the film is the same length as Chinatown I did think it started to drag about an hour forty in but by that time there's only a little left and it picks up soon after. Also, the narration by Nicholson felt a bit cheesy and cliched at certain points and unneeded, props to Nicholson for taking a concept from the first film that was taken out but after seeing this it's no wonder it was taken out. I don't know if its just the copy that I had but the screen was just a tiny little box instead of the normal widescreen, maybe this was filmed differently than most but it does give it an edge. In the end, times have moved on but I think it's a very good follow up to a film that no one asked for. If you've seen Chinatown there's no reason to not watch this.

(de) wrote: Excellent depiction of society versus progress and the problems of macro against the micro. The script is full of local dialogue, which although is hard to follow certainly helps add to the flavour of small town Tennessee.
(nl) wrote: The follow up to the massive success of *Hercules* the year before, this is a lesser film, although it has its moments. There are many peplums that are, uh, much much worse.

He learned too late for himself that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given, it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."..."fire"?
