This afternoon I saw the movie Hangover Part 2 at AMC Cinemas, Pacific Place, Admiralty, Hong Kong. One of the movies from my Must See Movies list, and the following is my movie review.
In the past several months I have seen many sequels to franchises and this have to be one of the worst one. The original had the surprise and twists of a fairly engaging story. This time it is just a rehash of all the same encounters with the same types of characters and antagonists, but set in Bangkok and Thailand resort area, Phulay Bay Ritz Carlton, Krabi. If you really wants to you can visit all the places the characters went to in Bangkok.
The movie try to give the story some twists but they were shallow, easy to figure out and did not offer enough intrigue. Therefore to shock the audiences and give them something to think about, the director decides to introduce various frontal nudity. Starting from 10 minutes into the movie, to full frontal nudity of transvestists who are half transformed. I am very surprise this movie is not “R” or “III” rated given those scenes. It is definitely not a movie that under ages should be watching.
If this movie is the only choice at your box office. I suggest you go have a nice dinner with your partner/love one instead.
