Bruce Willis has still got it. I know I wasn’t very nice about A Good Day to Die Hard (believe me, I really TRIED, because I love the man and the franchise so much!), but this one is a winner. I might even go so far as to say this was better than the first one. That’s right. Sequel wins. Suck it, stereotypes.
That said, it was a little unusually put together. The actors were totally on their game – Malkovich especially. When that man does comedy, he doesn’t fuck around. He totally nails this role, and was funnier than ever in this movie. However, the story itself was put together a little strangely.
The first half or so was almost exclusively a comedy. There wasn’t a whole lot of action, save a faked death and an escape from some suits in the beginning, but the comedy was spot on. Then, it was almost a straight shift into action, with the comedy coming less frequently, but often enough to keep its title as a “action-comedy”.
The new bad guys were pretty good, too. Anthony Hopkins continued to surprise me throughout the movie. And the martial artist/master assassin (Byung-hun Lee) was pretty hardcore.
And, of course, I have to say something about my favorite lady, Catherine Zeta-Jones. She plays Frank’s ex, Katja, a KGB agent, and forces a half-assed love triangle with him and Sarah, but her espionage was pretty good.
Perhaps most entertaining was Sarah’s transition. She gets to help! Shooting a gun, spy shit, playing a part, speaking a little Russian, getting a sought-after intelligence contact to talk. Mary-Louise Parker is awesome (if you haven’t seen Weeds, you fail at life), and while I think she’s great in this movie, I had a hard time watching her come up short physically against CZJ. She is so spectacular and so beautiful, and her character is so plain and frumpy.
That probably sounds super-shallow, and I know she was supposed to look that way in the movie, opposite Katja who was supposed to be this glamorous superwoman, but I guess I still see her as Nancy Botwin, the sexy, unabashed, unyielding pot dealer in Weeds. I guess I’ll always want to see her that way because she was such a powerful character.
I’m taking it down just a smidge because it was a little weird for it to shift so distinctly from comedy to action in the middle. Other than that, very funny, very smart, awesome action, well-written storyline, nothing TOO over the top, and a bunch of my favorite actors together again. WIN 😀
