My Thoughts:
My first Bollywood movie. I have bought it, after I came across it when looking for superhero movies I haven't seen yet. Clocking in three hours, it could have been much shorter with the same story. But I feel that seems to be the Bollywood charm to move the story along a little slower. I didn't mind. I also didn't mind the typical song-and-dance interludes, for which Bollywood is famous for. Though I enjoyed it, I won't jump on the Bollywood band wagon just yet, but I will get myself the movie to which this is the sequel to.
This is the first time I watched a movie in Hindi. I knew, that English is spoken very much in India. But I still found it strange, how they constantly switched between English and Hindi. Often even during a sentence.

Here the trailer:

For fans for fun superhero movies, I can recommend checking this out. Tthough the first hour borders on strange. Too much "puppy eyeing" his love interest. But when he got to the big city (Singapure), it is more like superhero movie like you would expect. Pete would have to fast forward in four scenes though :laugh:
I would say, about 10-15 minutes out of 170 minutes are song and dance.

Here an example of one of the dance songs. They are used to further the love story. I expected to cringe at them, but for some reason I had a smile on my face during those :laugh:

The star of this movie played two characters: The hero and the hero's father in flashbacks. He did a good job in playing two different characters. The father is the main protagonist of the first movie, and after seeing him here, I got interested to check out the first movie.

My Thoughts:
This is what I would call more of a light horror... it played out more like a suspense/thriller... but also had a bit of blood in it as well. Another thing I noticed is this movie (which was made in 1981) has a real TV Movie feel to it... if it wasn't for the gore and the several scenes of nudity I would have guessed that this one was a TV Movie. There is a couple familiar faces in it as well... Of course Jennifer Jason Lee... but also Lauren Tewes who was part of the main cast of The Love Boat. It is a good movie... well above average. Unfortunately the  DVD itself has absolutely no extras what so ever.

Tom's Random Reviews, a review by Tom


MOVIE / DVD INFO:

Title: Sam & Max: Freelance Police: The Complete Animated Series
Year: 1997
Rating: NR
Length: 300 Min.
Video: Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Stereo

Plot:
The adventures of 'SAM & MAX: FREELANCE POLICE!!!' is an edgy and often irreverent, impudent, insolent, impious and silly series about a pair of likeable law enforcement types who don't take crap (oops! we mean guff) from anybody. It's about the timeless struggle between good, evil and snacktime; the weekly mishaps of a six-foot dog-Sam and a three-foot rabbity-thing (though he prefers the term 'lagomorph')-Max-who have a mirthful time trying to resolve only the weirdest criminal cases of the day. Really.

For your own good, and the good of mankind, enjoy 'SAM & MAX: FREELANCE POLICE!!!'

Based on Steve Purcell's enormously popular underground comic. Original package illustrations by Steve Purcell.

Disc 1:
1. The Thing That Wouldn't Stop It
2. The Second Show Ever / Max's Big Day
3. Bad Day On The Moon / They Came From Down There
4. The Friend For Life / Dysfunction Of The Gods
5. Big Trouble At The Earth's Core / A Glitch In Time
6. That Darn Gator / We Drop At Dawn
7. Christmas, Bloody Christmas / It's Dangly Deever Time

Disc 2:

10. Tonight We Love / The Invaders
11. Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang / Little Bigfoot
12. Fools Die On Friday / Sam & Max vs. The Uglions
13. The Final Episode


My Thoughts:

Not as much fun as the game but worth the 18 bucks I spent. The dialog between Sam and Max has its highlights. A wonder is, with what they could get away with in a show, which is supposed to be aimed at kids. For fans of Sam and Max definetely worth checking it out.
