Well, this was 'unique', in lack of better words...
9 June 2012 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Alright, just having seen "Fubar II", I wasn't aware of it being a sequel, as the DVD I got hold of was titled "Fubar: Balls to the Wall". So I am not sure how badly you needed to have seen the first one in order to fully appreciate the sequel.

I must say that this particular movie is somewhat of an acquired taste. I had initially expected more comedy from it, but that wasn't to be. The movie did, however, have lots of irony, sarcasm and witty dialogue. Plus the quirky characters really helped the movie along as well.

I actually don't think I laughed a single time throughout this entire movie, which is why I am only giving it a 4/10 rating.

The story itself was actually decent enough, though bordering on being a bit too extreme. However, what helped make the movie bearable to watch was the quirky extremes of the characters in the movie. The two main characters Terry (played by David Lawrence) and Dean (played by Paul Spence) were like live-action-rendering of Beavis and Butthead. Most funny was the likeness they had to some of the people that I actually know.

The movie was nicely shot, great camera work and some really good places and locations used for filming.

However, labeled as comedy, but being unable to even bring a smirk to my lips, this movie was somewhat of a disappointment to me. Or as I said earlier, something of an acquired taste - which wasn't particularly my taste, though. I assume you have to have a particular mentality in order to fully appreciate this movie, and I am sure that there is an audience out there for it somewhere, I just am not part of that particular audience.
