Watched a NF BD copy tonite.
The AV is excellent BTW.
Kinda liked it a little better.
Still, it's not as good as the first film, definitely not as funny.
Maybe Mathew Vaughn shouldn't have relinquished the reins....
One thing that did jump out at me this time is how Chloë Grace Moretz phones it in.
I often caught her acting.
OTOH, Carrey, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse put in some stellar work here.
Will buy when it gets to the Bargain Bin....
Agreed. I still liked her in this, but when I think of scenes I prefer from her, they are very intense and often combine some kind of physical nuance or edge.
Her acting seemed pretty similar in Carrie as well and perhaps she does not have the experience to do the calmer subtleties yet? Speaking of Carrie, when the crap hit the fan she puts her body in a really creepy stance and gives a non human look to her. She really has a knack for physical acting imo.
Both the first and second film is very close to the comic book story combining the last three limited series they made. A third film shouldn't be out of the question to close it off.
I actually liked the 2nd film better because the first film sort of took away the reality aspect by adding a rocket pack.
