A cunning way of making a sequel to a movie where both leading characters lose their lives. Richard Lester's direction ensures a fast pace and plenty of fun, especially in the first half-hour; and there are attractive performances from Tom Berenger and William Katt. It's just too bad the screenplay isn't up to the original, being deficient in both comedy and thrills.
"There's no star chemistry... Doesn't match its pregenitor in either casting or style."
