  • It's not all bad. It's just part bad: It suffers from cliches and corniness, from the same kinds of scenes played over and over, and from more false endings than the last "Lord of the Rings" movie. show more

  • The movie ends with a setup for another sequel, which will undoubtedly be embraced by fans. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait another 14 years to see it. show more

  • All of the cast members deliver smooth, capable performances, but this sequel clarifies why Howard has become the biggest star from the original ensemble. (He also gave one of the strongest performances in Lee Daniels’ The Butler this past summer.) show more

    One of the best movies I've seen in awhile. It is an emotional rollercoaster, just like life. The cast, together, works!!! Awesome! I didn't know this was a sequel till I watched the 'making of' part of the dvd. You don't need to have watched the first movie (which I WILL now) to love this movie.
