Undisputed 2: Last Man Standing (2006) Review
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
spoilers are not about the plot.
apparently people on IMDb don't care if the fights scenes are sped up. like (dacascos) drive, this movie fizzled every time a fight happened, due to sped up photography that makes everything feel phony...and comedic. just look at the crowd in the background-- they move like limited 70s animation.
the narrative works better than i was expecting, and has a few touching moments, but every fight scene is disappointing. jump cuts hide missed impacts. slow motion and undercranking hide the speed of the live performance.
adkins is an amazing kicker with great form, but the moment i see a bunch of sped up stuff, i'd rather be watching buster keaton or harold lloyd than a martial arts movie.
