There are so many dumb moments in this film and the direction is less than stellar. Neeson has said that they wont be doing a third and thats a pretty good thing because if this is the level that they're going with then i think we're better off without a third.
In terms of the dumb moments, I couldn't believe the whole driving sequence when the daughter, who had only had a few urban driving lessons, was suddenly able to drive round the alleys and backstreets of Istanbul like a world champion rally driver, left foot braking and sliding around the tightest of corners. I know films like this need a certain degree of willing suspense of disbelief, but that was just taking it too far.

Doctor Who: The TV Movie (1995): Filled in the whole left by series 7 last night be re-watching this as part of the Revisitations box set. McGann is still sadly underused as the Doctor (Get him back for the 50th anniversery I say!) but Eric Robert's as the Master is truely horrible. The companions are vanilla at best and the setting is to American-trying-to-be-British for my taste.
There's also 'THOSE LINE'S'. I don't need to disscuse these, do I?
Over all, it's not as bad as I remember, but still prity terrible. Off to watch Ambassader's of Death now.

A beautifully shot WW2 drama from the director of the brilliant Saints And Soldiers.

Not as good as the first but certainly one of the best indie war movies you're probably ever going to see.
I had no idea Saints and Soldiers had a sequel.

For a low budget film the original was excellent. I'm going to seek this out now.

If you like indie war films Pedro, i'd recommend The Bridge and Winter in Wartime as two excellent films.

I watched Murder Party via Netflix a few months back, reeks of no budget but not a total pile of wank as MTDS would say!
