| Good comedy - and better than the first
This is comedy at about the level it should be at. It's not everything to simply come up with a spoof concept, and throw in remote drone jokes in the film for about 1 1/2 hours, those jokes need to actually be FUNNY, and this here supplies funny moments throughout. It's inspired, it's got rhythm, and the surrealistic humor makes sense, rather than just being absurd notions with no real spirit like most such spoofs do.

It's better than the first one, and if not for a subpar final act, the whole film stands well together and sustains a good level in the spoofing job.

A good comedy. Worth one's time, if that person wants to merely laugh a bit for 1hr30.

6.5/10.

Trivia

In the film, the body count is compared to the films "Robocop" and "Total Recall". Both films were directed by Paul Verhoeven and Miguel Ferrer (Harbinger) starred in "Robocop" as Bob Morton.


Quotes

Tug Benson: It seems like only yesterday I was strafing so many of your homes. Here I am today, begging you not to make such good cars.


Goofs

When they are rigged to parachute in, their gear is in a free-fall configuration and they are wearing free-fall parachutes, but their chutes have a yellow static line that opens the chute automatically. Free-fall parachutes don't have a yellow static line, they have a rip-cord that the jumper must pull themselves or is automatically deployed at pre-determined altitude by an altimeter the jumper wears on their wrist.


Crazy Credits

FUN FACT: Actor Richard Crenna invented tartar sauce.


Alternate Versions

The film has had a checkered UK censorship history. For its original cinema release, 54 secs were cut for a 12 certificate, removing all footage of nunchakus during the Rambo scene and editing the spoof Basic Instinct (1992) sex scene in the apartment. The video was rated PG and the cuts were expanded with a further 1 min 7 secs of additional edits to remove a single use of 'fuck' and the complete removal of the bedroom scene. The same print was used as a basis for the PG-rated DVD, although the distributors made a further two minutes of edits including the removal of Ramada's line "Wild, free, passionate, unbridled sex. I'd fondle you in ways you can't imagine" and even the already PG approved scene in the limousine. The UK Blu-ray version reinstates the previously cut footage and was passed 12 uncut in 2013.
