I saw it. It was nowhere near as good as the first one. As a matter of fact, they seemed loosely linked together, in terms of quality and spirit. It wasn't a bad movie at all, but it seemed to lack polish and direction. It was a bit over the top, which I don't mind, but it seemed as though it was over the top to make up for quality elsewhere. Or, it being so over the top stood out so much, because of lack of quality elsewhere. I would still say go see it for yourself since I'm harder on movies than most, and I can see how many people would really like this movie. Not that I didn't like it, because I did. But it was a disappointment when viewed next to the first movie.
