I'll put it this way...this movie is no masterpiece by any stretch, but I still thought it was fun and entertaining. It's an interesting and unique formula with the weathered action-movie hero cast, and they are drawing upon 30 yrs of pop action-movie culture, which feels redeeming, imo. I can only say, they've earned the right to do it, so have at it.
I'll introduce an interesting perspective to this...it can be argued that this movie is as mind-numbing and banal as the ilk of Tomb Raider, Ultraviolet, and Aeon Flux. I really hated those movies, and felt zero connection to any sort of drama or intensity in their respective storylines. E2, otoh, I did enjoy. It has "heart", if I were to describe it. I don't know why I would distinguish it apart from those other examples, but it is definitely worthy of being on a different level, imo.
I need your sweet love, Rosetta Stone girl!
