(ag) wrote: Everyone knows that when they plug in a "Step Up" flick, story takes a back seat to the jaw-dropping dance moves. "2" is no exception, but you will definitely be amazed at some of the choreo and dance work sprinkled throughout the movie.
(ca) wrote: It was an alright movie not so funny though thought it be a lot more funnier then it was
(ru) wrote: Not as clever or interesting but with more action and gore. Not gritty, but has got zazz. It lacked direction, with hardly relatable or likable characters, and kind of annoying at times.
(gb) wrote: There is no real pay-off or conclusion to this movie that makes any sense to its context. The setting, the asylum, ends up having very little to do with the actual twist at the end. The characters are two sheets short of cardboard cut-outs - with petty dramas between them (such as stealing girlfriends and gossiping) to provide a false sense of depth and character development. If the makers of this movie were out to make a movie that is as bland and inoffensive as possible, they succeeded - it wasn't boring enough to be boring, exciting enough to be exciting. It just kind of was. The premise is a great idea - the effect of the asphalt on the workers, the eerie and beautifully shot setting. It just ends up sort of turning into a drama that nobody asked for. Attempts to inspire paranoia in the viewers are unsophisticated and the opposite of terrifying. We all know something's happening, but the movie does not give us clues as to WHAT, until EVERYTHING is revealed towards the end. This defeats the purpose of the attempt at suspense.

(ag) wrote: Foster he gives a worthy performance as the disgraced cycler. The film doesn't ask you to feel for him, but just shows him as the cheat that he became. It is pretty straight forward stuff, but it was enjoyable.
(jp) wrote: OK. Obviously it could be better... Nonetheless, Mel Brooks' fans, such as me, love it for its witty humour.
(ag) wrote: A masculine, brutal and ruthless noir with a bunch of sleazy characters that seem as unlikeable as the story is suspenseful. Dixon, a hot-headed detective is on a case that will be decisive of his career in the police force. After a horrible mistake and a dead body on his hands, he needs to cover up all the mess. Yet, where the sidewalk ends there is always a dark corner, one that won't let anyone escape from their past. Even though Dixon is a violent policeman with a mobster attitude, he still looks convincingly likable to the audience. A very atmospheric movie, with a few nice turns.
(ru) wrote: Interesting but tedious. Everything was focused on Chaplin, and this egocentric approach was distracting, almost as much as the music during the repetitive train wheels shot.
(fr) wrote: Great work from Brian De Palma and the amazing Al Pacino.
(nl) wrote: I quite liked this - the plot is contorted and implausible, but so what? It is as claimed, 'a meditation on time and consciousness'. It's also a ripping yarn. A lot is cryptic and unexplained, and visually it is confusing in parts. But it has the merit of shifting the viewer out of the everyday into thoughts of reincarnation, human development, the 'meaning of life' on a larger scale. I wouldn't rave about it, but it's a good attempt.
