Lost Bullet 2: Back for More 2022 Movie Review

Lino, a mechanic with a knack for building cars, is scouted by the chief of a special law enforcement unit and offered a deal to avoid jail time after he gets arrested for a heist gone wrong. He proves his worth during the nine months he spends with the task force, but things take a turn after he gets wrongfully accused of murdering his mentor. Directed and co-written by Guillaume Pierret, the series revolves around Lino trying to retrieve a bullet embedded into a missing car. Starring Alban Lenoir as Lino, the rest of the cast includes Nicolas Duvauchelle, Ramzy Bedia, Stéfi Celma, Rod Paradot, Sébastien Lalanne, Pascale Arbillot, Arthur Aspaturian and Patrick Médioni, among others. Apart from Guillaume Pierret, the writers of the show include Alban Lenoir and Kamel Guemra.

It carries the same style of the first movie, though it is darker, from the very start, and aims to be become a thriller in its purest form – not making allowances for deep characterizations nor providing a thorough background to the story. This is a story of goodies and baddies, of police vs. mafiosos, it does not delve much into the grey areas.

It does stand out though, very slightly, from American movies, as it did in the prequel, but we fail to see that “special something” that would give us a unique viewing experience.
There are many car chases, there is a vendetta, there many guns going off, and it has an irregular pace, basing it on a predecessor that although not brilliant, it was a decent in as far as a cinematic piece is concerned. It does not aspire to much other than to repeat the lauding of the foot-soldiers rather than the heroes.

Very inspired in the American “car chase” cinema, it is impossible not to think of Fast & Furious and others of the sort – those productions with rough characters. ‘Lost Bullet 2’ does not aim to be like that, as the story is more sordid, more intimate, albeit constantly deflecting every time it is about to become more contemplative returning to the good old rough, pure and simple, thriller.
