WHOA! Is what I want to start my review with. Before the title of the movie even shows, I’m already drawn into a high-powered action-packed sequence. This movie has so much action and Adeline rushes to last me for a week and that’s saying a lot. I enjoyed the movie’s storyline because it not only played with my action seeking emotions but also my sentimental ones. I only have one negative thing to say; and it’s that I didn’t much like all of the “one-liners” from many of the characters. Although, I know it’s to be expected in this type of movie, I just could have done without a couple of them. Every second kept me at the edge of my seat asking, “Will they…? Can they…? What? How…?” and many others. A lot of film sequels tend to lose their edge and it shows on the screen of trying too hard to be a cool movie or being lazy and relying on special effects to make the movie work and it usually doesn’t. I’m happy to say that this is my favorite sequel movie because they brought something different to the table and that’s a really good story (and having the other characters from the old movie was genius). My favorite part of the movie is the very end past the credits. It left my mouth hanging open and do a whiplash to the person I went to the movies with asking, “What?” I will not give it away but stay for a few minutes after the movie to find out. All in all, I will but this movie when it comes to DVD/Blur Ray. Great action movie!
