Halb tot 2 – Das Recht des Stärkeren: Directed by Art Camacho. With Bill Goldberg, Kurupt, Jack Conley, Robert Madrid. Former WWE u0026 WCW World Champion Bill Goldberg and hip-hop group Tha Dog Pound’s Ricardo “Kurupt” Brown push life to the limit in this explosive sequel to the 2002 hit movie Half Past Dead.

“Half Past Dead 2.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThink about that for a moment. Does that mean, u0026quot;Half Past Dead, As Wellu0026quot; or u0026quot;Two Individuals who are Both Half Past Dead in equal measureu0026quot; or, u0026quot;3 Times as Dead as the Average Corpseu0026quot;? I donu0026#39;t know, but logic was never the strong suit of this wouldbe prison riot franchise. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhen the first Half Past Dead came out Steven Seagal wasnu0026#39;t the joke he is today. He was simply box office poison. The movie grossed 15 million dollars and quietly ended the theatrical career of Seagal. Since then, Seagal has gone on to star in about a dozen direct-to-video actioners. Oddly however, he is not in this sequel. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eInstead, we get rapper Kurupt returning as the whiny wise guy, u0026quot;Twitchu0026quot; and new-comer Bill Goldberg as a framed felon with a heart of gold. Continuing the seriesu0026#39; standard of actor/directors Art Camacho takes over from Don Michael Paul as director of the shenanigans. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eInstead of just resetting the series and using the name and general premise (annoying B-level rapper sidekick and innocent white ass kicker) as a selling point, Half Past Dead 2 legitimizes itsu0026#39; existence by continuing the plot of the first film which centered around $200 million in missing gold. Twitch knows where said gold is, as does another prisoner who is to be paroled before Twitch. Twitch does the only logical thing, picks a prison fight and gets sent to a prison closer to the goldu0026#39;s location…obviously. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTwitch plans to break out of prison. But before anything happens, a riot breaks out while Goldbergu0026#39;s daughter and Twitches fiancé are visiting. Mayhem ensues. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s almost needless to say, but Half Past Dead 2 is not a very good movie. There are massive logic jumps. The main plot is predicated on the assumption that a man can yell a name in a crowed room, pull out a gun and shoot someone, and then frame another man for the crime. The rest of the movie feels oddly reminiscent of Lets Go to Prison.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlso, Kuruptu0026#39;s Twitch, the filmu0026#39;s main protagonist, is more annoying than he clever. His motivations are not always clear, and Goldbergu0026#39;s performance could not be flatter if the film were animated u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStill, the film is oddly watchable. Thanks to Camachou0026#39;s energetic direction that makes the most of the filmu0026#39;s obviously microscopic budget, and some solid (for the genre) performances from the bit players.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd then there is the guy who has his face tattooed right below his face on his neck. Yeah, itu0026#39;s that kind of movie. Whereas recent big budget fair like Grindhouse tried to imitate this kind of film, Half Past Dead 2 is a real entry into the genre of schlocky B-grade ultra-violent grindhouse fair. While it doesnu0026#39;t hold a candle to the inspired brutality of say, Sonny Chibau0026#39;s The Streetfighter, or the out and out lunacy of Roger Cormanu0026#39;s Death Race 2000, Half Past Dead 2 does hold itsu0026#39; own. Itu0026#39;s not great, but itu0026#39;s definitely better than the original and nothing painful to watch.”
