With an improved story, some heart, more tongue-in-cheek humor, and snappy lines, this one’s better than the first.

Willis and Schwarzenegger surprisingly good in action roles. Jet Li’s brilliant but hardly in the movie at all. Why? Yu is good, but I would have liked more action from her to prove her worth to the team. If she’s “combat-ready”, let’s see it. Everyone shows off except Couture. Aside from the silly ear jokes, what’s the point of him being in these movies? He contributes nothing. Would be great to get Seagal into the next installment. He’s really the last big action star who’s missing.

Some soft special effects, like the first one. You can tell where they tried to save some money.
