I felt this was a big disappointment compared to the first one (Detonator). While the chemistry between Mike Graham (Pierce Brosnan) and Sabrina Carver (Alexandra Paul) is evident, the script was poorly written and I felt that this movie was just thrown in together. It was not a very suspenseful movie, and some of the acting is pretty atrocious, especially by the characters in Hong Kong. The first Detonator was very well-written, well-directed, and well-acted with great actors such as Patrick Stewart, Ted Levine, and Christopher Lee, but I could not believe that the same director was responsible for this sequel. I would definitely stick with the first Detonator.

Although the DVD says it was based on Alistair MacLean's novel it was not. It was based on a Alistair MacNeil novel which was based on an outline by Alistair MacLean. But that doesn't much affect my review its still a pretty solid action outing for a tv movie. While the first Detonator was pretty much a special ops story this one seems like it was an audition for James Bond for Pierce Brosnan. It has the hero beating his rival at cards, the at times vicious bickering between Mike and Sabrina is toned down a bit in the second outing in favor of a more flirtation relationship, a smash crash fist fight with a super strong henchman, a marriage cover with the leading lady, two gorgeous girls (although our hero doesn't exactly make it with either the attempt is hilarious though), a megalomaniacal plot with a super destructive weapon, and the action scenes are a bit more slick rather than the special ops type of the first film. If you like action thrillers of the nineties or Brosnan as Bond you will no doubt like this Brosnan and Alexandra "Bay Watch" Paul are both at the height of their sexiness and have a good chemistry in this made for tv flick. I have watched this many a times and still enjoy it today.

Interestingly I am the first person to rate three stars. Apparently you love it or hate it.

What you have here is a James Bond movie without Bond. Maybe. Envision Brosnan in his Bond capacity and you have a standard Bond film. But otherwise it doesn't work so well. We accept that in the casino, James Bond will always hit the card he needs. When Brosnan hits a six card blackjack hand on the second deal, it is not believable. Nor is the way everything else magically falls into place. Alexandra Paul only got the role because of Baywatch, but she isn't sexy here in the least, and her acting is predictable.

I have not seen the first Detonator, maybe that changes how someone sees this one. But on its' own merits, this is not a bad film but there is nothing in the least outstanding about it.

I brought this video from you. You saved me some money on it.
Here is the Bond man again as Mike Graham.
In this one you see a mutual chemistry between Graham and Sabrina.
He orders vodka martini, straight up with a twist.
This one could have been longer too.
It was unusual seeing Pierce with long hair, but you get the feeling by the opening that he just got back from this mission before they send him off to help Sabrina on a mission, and he just didn't have time for a hair cut and shave.
Anyway, he still looks great to me.

Pierce Brosnan is back as a government soldier/agent, this time looking for whoever stole a famous Rembrandt painting and replaced it with a forgery. Working with a female agent played by Alexandra Paul they travel to Holland where they find the painting in the possession of a businessman. He has a deal with gangsters from Hong Kong that involves a computer chip that can be planted in any telephone and then controlled by a satellite he has invented and plans to launch into space.

Detonator 2 is a little more light hearted in tone than the first one but its really no better of a movie. The plot is convoluted and dopey. The acting is somewhere between amateur and people hired from the local mall. William Devane hams it up during the action-packed but wholly unbelievable ending and then its over, leaving you feeling cheated out of quality entertainment.

When we receive and get the EXPECTED, we might sigh a sigh of satisfaction. More often we might not even raise an eye brow. Then we do not give of that satisfaction to the seller for providing so much to our enjoyment.
This movie was checked to be in excellent condition and valued to be Worth a price and worthy of giving entertainment.
This movie was packaged securely to survive the transportation from safe storage to me.
This movie was sent with confidence that it would arrive into my care quickly and safely.
All this required a seller that paid attention to basic details, that produced a successful transaction for both the seller and the buyer.
This brings buyers back to sellers again and again.
I am a happy buyer and look forward to doing business with this seller again.
