We are a flash in the pan in relation to the longevity of life on this planet. When we murder countless lives and tear down countless trees, we feel we control everything. In our arrogance, we are simply pulling our end closer. When the last homo sapien dies, the world will not die with us. We are not a chosen race by some make believe god. We are the first, and hopefully last species to have evolved to the point where we deserve extinction. We are also a species that has the power to change this outcome.
It is obvious to me now that religion was the wedge that drove the human animal away from the rest of the natural world. humanity has a superiority complex, and we can blame religion for this. Religion dictates that animals do not have souls, and therefor only serve two purposes to us - slaves and food. As an atheist, the idea of a soul is a naive explanation for our consciousness, all life is conscious. No life on this planet, or anywhere in the universe for that matter, holds more significance than any other. The universe is a complex yet totally random event - and the outcome of evolution and chance on this planet was man - a subspecies of ape, who took the reigns for the last 45,000 years. And what have we done with that time? Raped this world, enslaved each other, butchered countless lives in the name of civilization? Iintelligent animals that wield our dominance like monsters. We must all begin to understand that all life is equal, and to kill and eat other life when we no longer need to, (where we understand that we can draw all the nutrients we need from plants) - is cruel and unnecessary, and that man made gods do not offer pardons.
I can lift a fully-grown horse above my head, and I can hold my breath for ten minutes. To settle a wager, I once ate a pound of P.B Fouke's strongest badger poison and then ran a mile in the nude. I cannot feel pain, and I can see two miles unaided by a lens. No man can kill me. I have beaten a man of every in formal combat, including a Turk, a Pygmy Negro Man and rare Deepwater Jew. A medical doctor and two priests have written and signed a document confirming that I have no soul. All of the illuminati vets also agree that I have the most handsome cat in the world.
Ihan mainio fantasiasatu, joka olisi kaivannut hieman leikkaamista. Tarina ei selitä maailmaansa juurikaan ja henkilöhahmoja heitellään katsojan kasvoihin melkein elokuvan loppuun asti. Kaikki on kuitenkin mielenkiintoista ja pakka pysyy suurimmaksi osaksi kasassa.
Erityistä huomiota siitä että nuori Liam Neeson esittää yhtä rosvosotureista.
Ihan kelpo jatko-osa alkuperäiselle. Öllimöllien mysteriikka on tietysti kadonnut jo ensimmäisen osan katsojille, mutta se mikä yllätysmomentissa (ja juonenkuljetuksessa) menetetään... korvataan tietysti verellä ja suolenpätkillä.
