Verdict – 0/5

 

Pros –
n/a

 

Cons –
1) Obligatory sequel; time waste. Unfortunately, extremely talented Seth MacFarlane’s is not able to deliver something big so far apart from Family Guy. 
2) Not funny at all; can’t make a 2 hrs long movie counting on 4 jokes.
3) Reminds of Seth MacFarlane previous dud “A Million Ways to Die in the West”

 

Quote –
John: That’s great! I mean, just like Sam L. Jackson.
Samantha Jackson: Who is that?
Ted: You ever seen any movie ever? He’s the black guy.

VERDICT – 3/5

 

 

PROS –
1) Samuel L. Jackson as Master Sgt. Nathan West – a larger than life character
2) Sgt. West training monologues
3) Final plot twist.
4) Possibly the last John McTiernan movie. It’s last but definitely not the least.

 

 

CONS –
1) Weak presentation and marketing. This movie is terribly under-rated.
