A lot more enjoyable than its predecessor, it has one amazing performance by Anthony Hopkins in a rather fitting role. Luckily his talent wasn't wasted here as was the case in the two super-hero movies, Thor and Thor: The Dark World. I also enjoyed watching the Asian guy (he looks lethal), as well as the romantic antics of the female assassin (Helen Mirren) and his Russian lover.

The plot of the movie is complicated and some of the humor works (see the Helen Mirren paying with her feet while unleashing her violence). But the movie is too much of a fantasy, and is way too loud. Some of it was good though, and my favorite was the first, in which the hero escapes from some especially unfeeling government agent.
