    Did you feel that the main protagonists were a bit too dour? While probably accurate to how they would be in a such a miserable situation, I felt it did drag the movie to a crawl when only the younger actors were on screen.

    Still, the way the movie swings back and forth between the games and the ‘real enemies’ was well done. The conflict of the first movie is expanding, and I like that. It just feels a bit too much of a bridge to be wholly satisfying on its own. Maybe after seeing the 3rd I can come back and appreciate how it was woven together.

    PS. Haven’t watched the first movie or read the books, but I will ameliorate the latter deficiency in the next week. Perhaps that will improve my take on the movie as well.

    Nice review Tyler. Also, 350 is coming up. Better start watching Cannonball Run and Lethal Weapon.

    Couldn’t agree more! The first film left me cold and kind of indifferent but I’m fully on-board after this second one!
