(br) wrote: A vast improvement on the first instalment, this utterly ridiculous action comedy steals from every franchise going, and is stuffed with in-jokes. What other movie would allow Helen Mirren (great) to reprise her Queen as a lunatic assassin, allow two Hannibal Lecters (Brian Cox in a daft purple hat, Anthony Hopkins channelling Harold Wilson) to enjoy a hug, and include John Malkovich dressed as Carmen Miranda to round things off? The actors have a ball, and Bruce Willis even reins in his trademark smirk. Good fun.

(nl) wrote: It is not easy to guess what is coming in this movie. The premise is interesting - when does a game become so real that you have troubles distinguishing reality and a game. I did not think Cronenberg's version had much thought to it. Whenever the plot got boring, another layer got added.
