Maybe we're not so different, you and I. Well, except that you're a reciprocal of eternal goodness, and I've never been a reciprocal for much more than I could stuff in my pockets...

Am I interrupting?
Not unless you've come to try to kill me.

I had been excited for some time about this sequel, and was even more ecstatic when it came out in my local video store. However, after watching this movie the only thing I felt was relief that I hired the movie rather than buying it straight at the store.
I really, really am thoroughly irritated by this sequel. OK, I was well aware of the fact that it wasn't so much of a sequel, as an 'alternate' retelling, and I was fine with it. But by the end of the movie I was ready to pull out my hair. This sequel is a total insult to the first movie.
The only decent acting I saw in this movie came from Sam Neil, Miranda Richardson and maybe a few others. I really think Sam Neil and Miranda Richardson tried their best, but both look very out of place, and their talents and time were really wasted in this. As for the other actors... all I could do was laugh, and not in a good way. Most of the acting was really cheesy, and throughout the movie all I could think of was how funny their accents sounded.
As for the plot, I can probably only rate it one iota above the acting. I could hardly see anything good about the story, and most of it was pretty bad, from the not so surprising plot 'twists' to the corny romance. There was only one thing I found half way decent about this movie and that was the battle towards the end, but even that was ruined by the actual ending.
The lack of special effects don't really bother me, I've seen plenty of movies that are absolutely riveting without them, although the movie may have been slightly more tolerable if it had had more.
erk... I'm going to stop now, because I seem to have annoyed myself again. So, overall, If you are someone loved the first movie, like me, spare yourself and don't watch this. I would not recommend this to anyone.
