I probably should have guessed from the full title of the movie (the “Enemy Within” part) that this was actually a sequel. It was enjoyable anyway, as there isn’t too much reliance on the previous installment to fill in the story and characters.
A lot of good turns and neat ideas. The runtime is a little long, but it never feels like it’s outstaying its welcome. As I mentioned, there isn’t much backstory needed, as enough is filled in through exposition. I also appreciated the lack of male chauvinism (A.K.A. dick-waving competitions) which has pervaded many action films lately.
The large cast size makes it hard for anyone to stand out in particular, but their effort as a whole is commendable.
The sets got a little confusing during some of the faster-paced scenes, but the sets were pretty cool.
Good gunfights, nothing too over the top. The violence and politics occupy two separate streams in the movie, so you can enjoy the gun play without thinking too hard.
Overall, satisfying. There are nits to be picked, but why bother?
Enjoyable for most adult audiences.
