Puts the S in Stupid......
7 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm not quite sure why Xander Cage returned, I just wish he hadn't.

This movie is so low brow, you might mistake it for a caterpillar. It's devoid of anything that looks like a plot or decent character development.

Instead its cheesy show off time with lots of tat's, juvenile bravado, sparkly overstated jewelry and guns from "da hood". This is a film that feels, in my opinion, like it was made by a 15 year old nick-named "flipper" (as in hamburger flipper) and his gormless, pimply friends. We all know thats not true but you get the idea.

In short a genuinely excruciating experience that puts the S in Stupid.....one out of ten from me.
