What’s harder to find than a pack of wild unicorns? The script Nicolas Cage turned down. Cage returns as the flame-retardant figment that’s as indestructible as Daffy Duck’s beak. One good joke concerning the shelf life of a Twinkie does not a movie make, and even the least discerning Comic-Con attendee will find reason to thumb their nose at this wretched sequel. Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor directed; with Violante Placido and Ciarán Hinds. 2012.
