I haven’t liked or enjoyed a Spike Lee film in many years. I was so leery to see this movie but I must say the premise of the storyline and the message makes this a movie of Spike’s that I’ve enjoyed in a long time (believe it or not). Now, there’s so much sex and vulgar language that you may not be able to focus of the message. A lot of the dialogue is spoken in “riddle form” so it helped me to focus on the words and the message. A great ensemble cast with Nick Cannon doing a pretty good job; Jennifer Hudson has a small role yet most of it she spends crying about a tragedy; John Cusack also has a good performance. Quite controversial referring to Chicago as an “Iraq” type land yet the statistics stand for themselves.
The testosterone filled movie plus one chick this time, is back! The cast is bigger with younger kick-butt characters. I don’t expect much of a storyline from this franchise so overall I enjoyed it as much as the first two film. It’s a shoot ’em up bang bang movie. Antonio Banderas is a good add; as his humor was funny…Wesley Snipes not so much, lol (his character development needs some help). I like seeing a lot of the old school and now new school action heroes together on the big screen. This is a “guy’s” movie so most females may not like it yet I did.
