The movie is often criticized for being a bad movie and it got bad reviews when released, compared to the first one, but I felt the second was good actually.

Now like the first one, it's a very deep film at all. Both movies suffer from the same weakness and that is weak villains.

But as a violent comic book style fantasy action movie, but on that level it works. One thing I noticed on this viewing, since I was a kid, is that the villain may have been inspired by the villain from Live and Let Die (1973), as both villains are druglords who both have a psychic, and both are black as well. Maybe I am reading too much into it, I just thought maybe it wasn't a coincidence.

But either way, I thought it was an effective action comic book style romp, and it worked on that level, and felt it was up to par with the first one, maybe just a little less so but still good. Although the rock music isn't near as good in this one as the first.

What do you think, or why did it get a lot of hate?
