Michael Bryce was working for Triple-A Protection Services and giving his clients top notch treatment.  Until his client was murdered after boarding a plane.  Two years later Michael has not recovered from losing his client.  He is still a bodyguard but for low-end players.  Darius Kincaid has offered his testimony against a murderous tyrant for his wife Sonia’s freedom.  He doesn’t care that he will spend the rest of his life in jail because he only wants her to be free.  Interpol knows that anyone who was scheduled to testify against the tyrant Vladislav Dukhovich dies before they take the stand.  So, they decided to protect him every step of the way.   Amelia Ryder is in charge of the Interpol Protection detail.  Once they head to the courthouse, it all hits the fan,  After multiple bullets, Amelia and Darius are on the run to her safe house.  Darius warns her that Interpol must have a leak and she needs to call someone she can trust to help her that’s outside of Interpol.  She only knows one person that can handle Darius and that’s Michael Bryce.  Once Michael learns he must protect Darius (who attempted to kill him 29) he says no.  But Amelia promises Michael she will get him his status back in the protection business.  Michael has to keep Darius alive but he (and Duhkovich’s men) want to kill him every step of the way.  If Michael doesn’t get Darius to the court on time and alive a Dukhovich will be free.

What if Pulp Fiction’s Jules met Deadpool (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer)? Well, you don’t have to wonder anymore.  This movie is your answer.  With quick-witted banter, 2 crazy “how we met” stories, plenty of fights, and a plethora of car chases, this is a fun shoot-em-up movie.  While the plotline is nothing new nor the characters, it’s still fun.  It’s the comedic timing of Reynolds & Jackson that make this movie worth watching.  Seeing Reynolds do his best Jackson impression is great.  When the action slows down, the dialog picks up and vice versa.  Now the storyline between Michael and Amelia is boring, the storyline between Darius and Sonia will compete with Harley Quinn and Joker.  They may just be the movie couple of the year.   See this one in the movies and see it until the very end of the “director’s cut”.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars

You are as useful as a condom in a convent – Darius

Let’s just focus on you “dying of natural causes”, shall we? – Michael

Like I said, there is nothing more important than a good education – Dukhovich

Did I say you could look around – Sonia

Surly and the other animals are enjoying the high life at the old Nut Shop.  Since it closed, they have taken over and stop scrounging for nuts in the forest.  Now it’s a 24-hour party.  Andy, however, thinks they are becoming lazy, fat, and entitled.  They are losing their animal instincts.  She tries to teach the younger children but it’s falling on deaf ears.  Surly doesn’t see why Andy worries so much until the Nut Shop explodes.  The animals don’t know what to do for food and they don’t want to scrounge for it.  Surly and Buddy try to find a new Nut Shop but fail.  Andy tells them they must learn their old ways in Liberty Park.  However, Andy doesn’t know that Mayor Muldoon is upset about Liberty Park.  It is the only place in this town that doesn’t earn him any money.  So, he wants to get rid of it and create an amusement park.  As his bulldozers rip apart the park, the animals try to stop them.  The Mayor calls Critter Catchers to trap them.  Surly is caught in a trap and is freed with Precious’s help.  But soon, Precious is taken by Heather Muldoon, the mayor’s daughter.  Buddy and Surly go to rescue Precious from Heather.  While Andy tries to find a new place to live and go back to nature.

The sequel to The Nut Job is just a fun movie (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  Animals are becoming lazy because they don’t have to work anymore.  Everything is given to them.  So they lose their need to fight and survive.  Once the handouts are gone, they don’t know what to do.  They wait for Surly to give all the answers.  Getting back to basics is the best for these animals.  This is a great lesson for kids to learn.  They should get strong and not settle for an easy path but learn to fight and survive.  Once they learn, they must keep fighting and growing.  Also, kids learn that money isn’t everything and animal need a home too.  While golf and amusement parks are nice, parks and recreation are just as good.  Kids will enjoy this film and adults will get some laughs, too.  This is a wholesome movie for all with plenty of lessons thrown it.  And pay attention to the Mayor’s license plate.  It tells all you need to know about him.  See it in theaters but no need for 3D.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars
