"Note: The continuation from my review of Movie Menace.

I think I expected too much from this second book in the Deathstalker trilogy. Stylistically, Movie Mission is a better book than Movie Menace - being the second book means the action and mystery are ramped up, but at the same time because the overall mastermind can't be caught until the third book, some pretty stupid things have to happen instead.

Like:

Suspect: Hey Frank, move this box for me. And don't worry about the suspicious markings on the sides while you're doing it.
Frank: Oh sure. This box *is* marked suspiciously but I'm gonna ignore it and move the box anyway.
Turns out the markings are warnings the box is filled with live explosives...

Or:
Joe: One of our suspects is walking around with a massive black eye. But who cares, we're too busy trying to solve this case so let's ignore it.
...

Yeah, be prepared for lots of stupid, because Movie Mission is just so rife with detective fail I... just... can't.

But on the other hand, I did say the writing's better, and that's true.

“Big Bobby!” Joe blurted out.
First rule of undercover tracking? Don’t yell out your suspect’s name while you’re tracking him.
Oops.

Or maybe the writing's better because of the detective fail?



Hey! These animated gifs are kind of cathartic. Mmmm... well, and at least there was one very amusing and very crazy taxi chase scene..." said.
