NELU, a man in his forties, works as a security guard in the local supermarket in Salonta, a small town on the Romanian-Hungarian border. This is the place where many illegal emigrants try to cross, by any means posible, to Hungary and then further to Western Europe. One morning, NELU will “fish” something different out of the river: a Turkish man trying to cross the border. Not able to communicate verballly, the two men will somehow understand each other. NELU takes the stranger to the farmhouse, gives him some dry clothes, food and shelter. He doesn’t really know how to help this stranger. The Turkish man gives NELU all the money he has on him so he will help him cross the border. Eventually, NELU takes the money and promises he will help him cross the border tomorrow, MORGEN…

But the one thing that ABCs of Death 2 does that conquers its predecessor is that it can be funny while also restraining itself from being too ridiculous. In other words, this is what happens when you put a movie like this in the right hands.

Unfortunately, the brutal action sequences and a few truly memorable moments are overshadowed by corny villains, flat dialog, and cringe-worthy sound effects. If everyone involved had just played to their strengths, this could have been a truly frightening and intense survival horror experience. Instead, its a middling action-thriller with a promising premise but disappointing delivery.

Anyways, this should never been made into a movie in the first place for it would've been much more interesting had it been a documentary. At the start of the movie, we assumed that it's about the photographers or journalists, but then it shifts to it's story to be about the people- the people of Georgia that is, a minor country located next to Russia. Apparently, Georgia is not the first country to be invaded by Russia because they had also invaded Afghanistan as well and the Americans intervened by selling weapons to the people of Afghanistan unaware that those very weapons were going to be used on us and to our allies. On the first 30 minutes or so dwells on a particular situation which an American photographer journalist, Thomas (Rupert Friend) along with some of his colleagues coincidently were saved by some Georgian soldiers from Iraqi soldiers on the side of Saddam Hussein. Before Thomas get carried away he's then given a cheap looking trinket by one of the Georgian soldiers to remember him by. Then the film jumps a few years later, and because he still remembers the Georgian soldier who saved him, he felt an obligation to go and see him since he was offered an assignment to go down there. Georgia another country that's located almost right next to Russia, are in cahoots with them since they're accusing them of an attack even though theirs evidence that it actually happened. For it's obvious, the reason Russia is declaring war against the people of Georgia is because the opportunity is there for it was during the Olympics. At this point viewers are wondering how come Georgian villages or towns who live so close to the border are not running far away from it. Director Renny Harlin never explains for the people just stand their and accept their fate while Thomas and his filming crew are eager to film as much atrocities instead of running away from it. And then the film shifts to having the journalists being chased by that particular sadistic Russian army since this chip contains damning footage that could dampen Russian's credibility. And it does this on such pretentious fashion that viewers wouldn't really know what to make of it. Emmanuelle Chriqui plays Tatia the girl who's family of the village/ town that was attacked. Heather Graham stars as an unrecognizable Miriam Eisner, Andy Garcia as Georgia's President Mikheil Saakashvili, and Dean Cain has a small part as US ambassador of Georgia. 1 star out of 4 for it's good intentions

But, what makes this movie a very strong movie was that the action is solid, the characters are pretty cool, the writing and jokes really really work, and has really well and great drama. Overall, this movie is great and worth watching compared to Disney's other work in the mid and early 2000s.

Lee M (ag) wrote: Far from condemning recording media out of hand, Egoyan scrutinizes our ambiguous relationship with them; and as the characters grope towards less alienated (self) images, the film achieves an uneasy synthesis of intellectual analysis and deeply felt emotion.
Garrett C (us) wrote: Gandhi is a stupendous achievement of a film that needs to be seen, and while it's not as technically brilliant as the David Lean films it attempts to emulate, Kingsley's performance is rightly legendary. Gandhi's life and achievements alone would be remarkable enough by themselves to propel a film to a higher realm.
Mark R (kr) wrote: Absolutely outstanding. Reminiscent of a time when cinema was actually an art form - remember that? The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it's about 7 hours long, but by God if you can last that long it's worth it. Scenes with Hitler's valet and Himmler's astrologist were particularly captivating, if you ask me.
