Awesome, I actually liked the first one, so I'll def check it out.

Not sure how good a Direct to Video sequel will be, though...

i liked the first one, in my collection, curious to see how this will be but chances are it will suck.

my hopes aren't high either, but the first one was fun (I own it as well)

So i just looked this up in IMDB. The guy who directed this did Sniper 3. I gotta admit, I like the Sniper series (don't ask me why). The cast looks good too, Michael Parks, Ernie Hudson, and Vinnie Jones.

So it's not a purchase but def a Redbox rental and if we're lucky, some HD Netflix streaming to boot.

Ummm...when is the first one coming to bbblu? I hope this isn't another situation like The House On Haunted Hill where we have the second one but never the first.

im interested to see this but not going to get my hopes up that this will be good.

I know the first one wasn't received well by critics, but I liked it too. I thought it had a great ending.

Spoiler
When Ryan Reynolds locked himself in the hospital room and then unplugged the boss' life support totally made up for any shortcomings the movie may have had.

I definitely like the smokin aces, the ending is great, the score sets it off... I actually defend this movie alot, I think theres a whole theme about how generations de-evolve and how father/son dynamic plays into, which makes the ending have the impact it has...

I think any resemblance of these themes will probably dissapear in a direct to video unnecessary prequel, but I'll give it a rent.

that was great and the movie as a whole really shows reynolds range from a comedy actor to a dramatic actor. i heard he's excellent in the nines, i need to see it.

my favorite scene is when
Spoiler
jeremy piven is trying to kill himself but is so fucked up on the drugs he's taking that he passes out before he pulls the trigger.
i think that scene kinda sums up the whole movie, it a bunch of violence with guns and a whole lotta drugs. i also think this movie displays piven's acting abilities, and it's too bad he hasn't done more dramatic roles since.
