HARD TARGET 2 [ 2016 ], directed by #RoelReine.
This here is one unnecessary #sequel to a long-forgotten #JCVD hit from the early 90's, full of cheap and mindless "action". Retired mixed martial artist Wes "The Jailor" Baylor (#ScottAdkins) can't refuse a million-dollar purse he's offered for one final bout in #Myanmar. But when he arrives for the fight, he learns he's been tricked into becoming the target of a human hunt. Carrying only water and a ruby-filled money belt for the last person standing, Wes must outsmart the heavily armed group that has paid to kill him. As he fights for his life in the treacherous jungle terrain, the hunters become the hunted.
#RobertKnepper and #RhonaMitra are playing the antagonists, and obviously they can do so much better else where but here.
Overall it's just another nostalgia-playing "B category" film, which, first of all, lacks life, and has way too many minuses to keep them unnoticed. For example, a simple and corny script, unoriginal story and flat characters, that look like they are in here just for the hell of it, and are completely forgettable.
Anyways, I'll give it a 5/10 grade, all thanks to Adkins, otherwise I wouldn't even watch it.
