Super Troopers 2 | Average Guy Movie Review

When it is discovered that a piece of land just inside the Canadian border is actually part of the US, Vermont State Governor Jessman (Lynda Carter) hires our favourite band of misfits to police this new patch. But the residents of the local town aren't all that happy about becoming American citizens, and they're even less happy about their new Highway Patrol officers. Will the guys strange antics and quirky approach to law enforcement be enough to win over the locals?

Probably not!

The fans of Super Troopers have been waiting a long time for a follow up to the cult classic. 17 years! Clearly, they wanted more. In order to raise funds for the production budget, Broken Lizard started a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo with a goal of raising $2 million. They reached that goal in the first 26 hours. By the time the campaign ended, $4.7 million had been raised, making it the 5th largest successfully completed Indiegogo project. However, 17 years is a very long time when it comes to sequels, and the results after a wait like that are usually far from perfect - just ask John McClane. But I am happy to say that (in my own humble opinion anyway) the guys from Broken Lizard haven't lost their touch.

Now it's fair to say that if you didn't enjoy Super Troopers, you won't enjoy this one either! Super Troopers 2 is more of what we loved about the first movie without it being a rehash. Sure there are a few nods to the original and some of the old jokes make it in, I'd be shocked if they didn't. But there's also a lot of new material in here too, mostly at Canada's expense, I'm sure they'll see the funny side. Rob Lowe makes an interesting new addition as the Mayor of the local town, Guy Le Franc. And the guys get into a hilarious and ongoing feud with the Mounties that they are replacing (Tyler Labine, Will Sasso, Hayes MacArthur).

Of all the returning characters, I would like to have seen more of Ursula (Marisa Coughlan) who has a blink and you'll miss it appearance. Super Troopers 2 could also benefit from a few more of the pranks the guys are known for playing on unsuspecting members of the public. Whereas the first movie kicks off with the pranking, this one required a little more setup, meaning it took a while to get this all important part. That being said, the movie is funny throughout and there is a side-splitting montage halfway through in which the guys use a little shock and awe on the townsfolk, make sure you watch out for a familiar face. Also, don't forget to check out the mid and end credits scenes.

While it's not quite as good as the first, fans of the original won't be disappointed. Super Troopers 2 was definitely worth the wait. It's one of those movies that's just a bit of easy fun; a bunch of muppets (in a position of authority) getting up to mischief on the open road - in what used to be Canada. I'm sure many jobs would be more exciting if they allowed employees to pull these kind of pranks on each other...well maybe not all of them.

These days it seems that most movies and TV Shows about World War 2 focus on the Americans. We have even seen a British operation depicted as carried out by the Americans - U-571 - yes Hollywood, we're still bitter. That's not to say there haven't been some good ones; Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Hacksaw Ridge, these are all brilliant depictions of World War 2. But are we in danger of younger generations thinking the Americans single-handedly won the war? What happened to the good old days when movies were made about British actions? Or better yet, movies like The Longest Day and A Bridge Too Far, which told the story from the point of view of all involved, including the local civilians. That said, could movies like Dunkirk and Darkest Hour be a sign that things are changing?

Recently we spoke with Lance Nielsen, the Director/Writer/Producer is currently working on a TV series that depicts the actions of British Airborne forces during the war. "P…

So That Avengers 4 Trailer Leak...Do We Believe It?

Warning: Possible Spoilers

Esquire have recently reported on a post to the Marvel Studios subreddit. A user posted what is supposed to be a description of a leaked trailer for Avengers 4, which has now been deleted.
But the question is; is it real? Some consider it "too detailed to be fake", while others are calling it "bad fan fiction".

Here's what the post said:

The trailer starts off showing the damaged Infinity Gauntlet in a field on the farm planet. As the camera focuses in on the gauntlet, we hear Tony's voice: "We were destined to lose." Epic music score starts. The Quinjet is shown landing in a Wakandan wasteland as we hear Rogers say: "We have come so far." Tony and Nebula step off the jet as the remaining Avengers approach. Steve has a look of relief and says: "Tony". Tony, seemingly defeated, shakes his head and gives a friendly smirk back to Cap. Marvel Studios logo appears. We get a glimpse of the Battle of New York from…

Robert Redford To Retire

After a career that has spanned six decades and includes roles in such classics as All The President's Men, A Bridge Too Far, Sneakers and even Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Robert Redford has announced that his latest movie will be his last as an actor. The Hollywood veteran is set to play Forrest Tucker, a real-life career criminal who at the age of 70 pulled off a daring escape from San Quentin prison followed by a string of robberies that confounded the police and enchanted the public.

In an interview, Redford told Entertainment Weekly: 
Never say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting, and [I'll] move towards retirement after this 'cause I've been doing it since I was 21. I thought, Well that's enough. And why not go out with something that's very upbeat and positive?The director of The Old Man & the Gun, David Lowery (A Ghost Story) recently spoke with Empire Magazine about being the last m…
