Better than the first, and that's saying something
I will firstly say that after seeing the trailer and previews for this film I had serious doubts. I was afraid that the producers would just try to cash in on the original's success, and forget about any content.
I was pleasantly proved wrong.
This is the most fun I've had in the cinema in the longest time. I can't remember the last time I was so entertained.
Although it is a bit slow at times, and a bit predictable (although fun in it's predictability), it hardly lets up and continuously entertains.
If you loved the original, you will DEFINITELY love this film. The ending not only makes you laugh, it makes you think "What the hell?" and will make you eagerly anticipate (major understatement) the third installment.
There are some great lines, the same fun characters, an inventive and fun story, and some brilliantly staged action sequences.
In summation: SEE IT! See it on the big screen. If you miss it, you will surely regret it.
