This sequel sees CIA Agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) return to enlist a mysterious operative, known to us as Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro), to investigate a Mexican drug cartel that has been smuggling terrorists into the United States of America, emphasised greatly by a suicide bombing in a Kansas City grocery store, killing fifteen innocent civilians in the process. Their actions, however, escalate the cartel situation on the whole, resulting in various double crossings and the occasional kidnapping. A worthy film but one that in some peoples eyes, didn’t quite reach the dizzy heights of its predecessor.
The Delos amusement park provides rich vacationers a way out of their normal, stagnated lifestyle, so that they can live out their fantasies through the use of android robots that will provide them with anything they want. Peter (Richard Benjamin) and John (James Brolin) choose a wild west adventure which sees the pair being stalked by a robotic Gunslinger (Yul Brynner) that malfunctions after a computer breakdown. Not a film I’d recommend strongly but there are certainly worse ways of spending an evening.
