Retired special effects man Rollie Tyler (Bryan Brown) agrees to help
trap a killer for the NYPD. The killer is caught and shot dead but a
policeman also is killed. The police believe the killer was the one who
did it--but Rollie was watching it on a hidden camera and caught
someone else doing it. It eventually leads to hired killers going after
Rollie and his girlfriend...so Rollie asks old pal Leo McCarthy (Brian
Dennehy) for help.
Long delayed (5 YEARS!) sequel to "F/X" was basically ignored when it came out...but it's not bad. The story is a little needlessly convoluted but I was never bored. There are multiple twists and turns...especially at the end that caught me off guard. The action sequences are long, exciting and LOTS of fun (one with a clown was so out there it was almost surreal!). There is also some welcome humor that's actually funny (courtesy of Dennehy). However this movie has problems. The basic plot makes little sense--Brown would agree to help the cops again after what happened in the first picture? And, in a particularly stupid scene, Brown and Dennehy have a killer trapped under a truck...and drive away and let him go! Also there's a mean streak in here with some pretty bloody killings with sympathetic characters being killed and a kid and his mom being threatened at gunpoint. Still, if you ignore these lapses, this is a fun movie worth catching.
