    Just saw it tonight, I guess it was pretty good, alot like the first one. It was nice to see that redheaded guy from 13th Warrior and Blade 2 get some more screentime. My girlfriend thinks he's pretty hot, but I was distracted by Kate's partially nude scene. Most of it was OK, action-wise, but the ending had some good, solid action.

    Unlocked on request.

    I am looking forward to seeing this one (the movie, not the nude scene) if only because I really liked the original. The way it was paced and the coloring was awesome IMHO. If I don't get to see this one in theaters I'm going to be getting the DVD right away that's for sure. :D

    I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I wasn't a big fan of the first film so I went into this one with some low expectations...and I really enjoyed it.

    And not just for the semi-nude scene of Kate. (rowr)

    The effects were much improved too. There's something to be said for a guy in a suit versus bad CGI.

    Definately! I like the way they use CG for the werewolves for difficult action shots, but use real suits up close. It was much bloodier than I thought it would be, definately more hardcore than the first.

    Yeh, I also love the way iot carries on from the first film. No hanging about.

    Question though, I can't be bothered to check the first one again but didn't Craven die at the end? Can't remember.

    No, he runs away when Viktor comes to confront Selene and Michael. Flashbacks from Evolution show that he was hiding off to the side when Selene killed Viktor.

    Oh boy. I saw the first one with people from work, and it was awful.
    Rented the 2nd because people told me it was better than the first.

    They lied!

    Hmmmmm... Tree falls on truck. Truck roof caves in. Truck roof magically pops back out. Truck roof caves in again...
    Continuity errors galore are almost funnier that the lusty pashion scene in which the guy is closer to the girl's navel than to, um, the intended target. And the guy wasn't even blonde. ;) Maybe the director needs an anatomy lesson.

    This sequel was a horrid follow up to an unimpressive original.
    Hell, it made the Matrix series look good.
