Kids say: Not yet rated

Not so much a movie as a procession of gonzo martial-arts action sequences, this sequel is only interested in telling a story that gets star and co-writer Adkins from one stylized scrap to the next. Accident Man: Hitman's Holiday gives Adkins ample opportunity to utilize the stunt man skills that have made him a cult favorite. But his character -- grouchy killer-for-hire Mike Fallon -- doesn't have any one-liners or motivation as strong as his punches and kicks.

A tangle of plot lines involve kidnapping, a missing love interest, blackmail, and a bolted-on callback to Fallon's former business associates that lead to a couple of big speeches that make Guy Ritchie's dialogue sound like Quentin Tarantino's. The filmmakers would've been better off concentrating on one of these stories and building it out, but Adkins clearly knows his audience and goes big on the crowd-pleasing altercations with an increasingly extravagant cast of assailants. Fans of cheerily violent B-movies will might find something to enjoy from the low-budget but carefully crafted set pieces. But beyond that, it will struggle to find its audience.
