100 Movies before we move: #63
A much better exploration of the core idea. Good suspense and emotional turmoil. 8/10.
Swapping the home invasion scenario for the urban war zone paid-off. It helps having a bigger budget. Good background and world building while maintaining the gritty realistic action. Some of the thoughts I had in the first film, about what people might really do (not everyone just wants to kill for the fun of it) was actually explored here, which shows the filmmakers are thinking about what they’re creating. I’m now looking forward to the rest of this series. 8/10.
