There ain’t no electric boogaloo going on in this highly anticipated sequel to the 2011 action film that took the martial arts world by storm, just lots of ass-kickery. I mean, like seriously, all over the place. Making practically every other action film look like My Little Pony by comparison. Even the original film.

I can’t make this stuff up. If you don’t believe me, check out the Unusual Suspects who all get REAL excited for the massive amounts of blood flowing out of this Indonesian thriller (in fact, maybe we do need to talk to a therapist, this is probably not how humans are supposed to react to this much death). Check out what Chris, Brian, JC and Martin have to say…and then you should probably call the police.

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
