The sands burying me slowly....
on 17 November 2013
Nick Malloy is an Emergency Medical Technician, who finds himself caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse, with a vigilante tied to the paramedic's past.
With little time to spare, and his wife's life hanging in the balance, Nick must figure out why he's been chosen to be the pawn in this maniac's game before it's too late....
If you enjoyed the first movie, and are ready to suspend disbelief for ninety minutes, you will have a ball watching this.
Its a WWE movie, starring a huge jawed star who cannot act, but can run for miles and fight the good fight, and the villain stands in a sewer for the entire movie, ringing up Orton and getting him to drive somewhere and pick up a Wesley, maundering guy.
And this is where you really have to suspend belief, the rationale of the villain is the act that Orton saved someone else before his wife, who died.
So why is it Orton the guy picks on? Its really annoying, and if I were Nick, I'd tell him where to go, as his wife is pretty much safe for the majority of the movie.
But like I've said, ignore this, and its a fun movie, with good production values and some good set pieces.
In the end, you realise that Orton can fight two cops no problem, but struggles with a man nearly twice his age with one hand on the steering wheel.
But its the best film ever made about having your best friend get caught in a blast, and never finding out what happened to him.
