Road House 2 Gets Reviewed

Road-House-2The progression of events goes something like this:

1) I heard there was going to be a Road House 2. Result: Smile on my face.

2) I heard it was going to be direct to video. Result: Frown on my face

3) I heard Rod House 2 was NOT going to have Patrick Swayze in it. Result: I never gave Road House 2 another thought.

Personally I’ve yet to see a decent direct to video film (except perhaps Starship Troopers 2… which was dumb as hell but mildly entertianing). They usually go direct to video for a reason. But hld on a sec… one reviewer over at AICN is saying Road House 2 isn’t half bad… for a Direct to Video flick that is. Here’s some of what he had to say:

“But believe me, I’ve watched alot of terrible DTV sequels and I was amazed at how much this captured the unique ROAD HOUSE feel. I didn’t even know it was possible.”

There are many reasons why this is a worthwhile DTV sequel. Number one, it’s full of action. “Intense, Nonstop Action is on Tap!” says the back cover. There’s alot more fighting in this one than you get in modern Seagal movies, or even some of Van Damme’s, which is especially impressive since you’re actually watching a ROAD HOUSE picture more for the dialogue than the action. You get alot of punching, alot of bashing heads into things, some flying stools, an occasional unnecessary flip or exploding car.

So there you have it. Take it for what it’s worth. Perhaps I’ll wander over to the old Blockbuster and grab this one when it comes out on July 11th. But perhaps I’ll change my mind before then too. Who knows. I just can’t wait to get Doug’s impressions of this.
