Movies that Blog #2: Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever
In the times when 007 Dies another day, and The Transporter is on the job elsewhere, Franchise pictures decides to take a stab at the seemingly easy world of Espionage. what they found was that 2002 was more of a year for Stuff we already love, rather than a movie with people we spank it to……(Pause) one of the people we spank it to.
Premise: Mr & Mrs Smith- 3 years+Minorities With the appeal that only Duke Nukem could appreciate.
-Ecks’s bosses son gets kidnapped…………don’t say that too fast folks
-Sever used to work for the D……….IA (Defense Intelligence agency)
-A device that only DC Comic Vilians could come up with was stolen as well
-Ecks Saves his bosses son, who was his son…….Thanks Maury
-Explosions, fight scenes, and a close up of Lucy Lu cashing her check for this movie.
-Sever wins the fight and kills Ross with a “death strike” to the neck…..that was a thing
-Bullet has Nano-mites was needed, despite having the “DEATH” CHOP”
Now on to why this movie is 00-Sorry
-$70, million went into it 19, Million came out
-Too many kidnappings and thefts going on with little or no security protecting these items
-The movie “The Hot Chick” came out the same year and did better
-Bond, Frank, Parker……..>Ecks?
On the scale:
1. “not another Spy Movie”
10. Why Banderas Why
Ecks vs Sever ranks 8, it could’ve been focused around the nano-mites, the actual weapon that could bring these two together, but no, you gotta have the estranged family, forgotten son but remembers banging your bosses wife? good one.
Alternatives to watch
-Mr. Mrs. Smith
Ecks and sever walking during the bond opening gun barrel…..neither can reach guns fast enough……then The transporter runs them over…….while Spiderman Watches
See y’all soon…..again.

Really? Get Smart as an alternative? I hated that sucky movie. But it did do better in the theater. Anyway I agree this load of Mexo doodoo could have been done wwaaayyy better with some simple brain work. Great writing. I like it, I think some people might disagree though. I know friends who think this movie is actually good. KO is definitely gonna be pissed about this lmao!
