The wolfpack is back. This time they invade foreign shores. Stu is betrothed to Lauren, a young Thai-American, and is set to wed in a beautiful beach resort in Thailand. With best friends Phil & Doug, soon-to-be-brother-in-law Teddy and unfortunately Alan toasted beer and chucked marshmallows at a beach campfire. The next morning, Doug happily woke to a nice breakfast at the hotel while head-busted Phil, face-tattooed Stu and head-shaven Alan woke up in a rusty apartment in the middle of Bangkok with Teddy nowhere to be found. A mad search ensues for Teddy which includes encounters with a capuchin monkey, tiny Mr. Chow, Buddhist monks, Russian mobsters, Thai lady-boys, Interpol agents plus encore from Iron Mike Tyson.

Review

The movie was excellent. I was expecting little from the Mjolnir but they did an amazing animation job on it. Chris Hemsworth eerily sounded like the late Heath Ledger. Australians. Natalie Portman is always as lovely while Kat Dennings injected the funnies. Wait after the end credits.

Verdict

Repeat again and again.

 

In the beginning, there were mutants.

Nice storyline. Perfect cast. Effects was nothing special. Jennifer Lawrence is a breakthrough. I like Logan’s cameo.
