The acting killed this movie.
14 October 2019 | by welhof1See all my reviews

I really tried to keep an open mind going into this. I loved Backdraft. Great cast and story. They could have just copied that formula for this movie but instead they got the department of defense and stolen missiles involved and it just took off into something ridiculous.

The acting was terrible. Several parts I winced and got uncomfortable when the lead was shouting something dramatic.

The casting was poor. Ironically Baldwin's character was the best part of the movie.

This movie is a definite watch if you liked the first one but as most of the reviews have stated, it's a pretty weak sequel.
