This action adventure science fiction big budget, without any political propaganda.
This was shot in Budapest, and so like a Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, shot outside the USA trade contracts, this movie has the look of lack of diversity that makes real money in foreign markets.... if you can read between the lines here. It made twice as much outside the USA as in the USA.

I liked it. Sometimes using as few words as possible in a script says a lot more than the non stop babbling that ruins so many movies these days.

The fact of the matter is if you're not a fan of the original you wont be a fan of this one. Denis Villeneuve made a proper sequel and that had a natural progression to the original story and paid homage to all the questions we asked in the original. I highly recommend it.

Not bad but not that good as the real classic. Impressive production effort though
I don't think it will ever eclipse the original. Sequels rarely do based on nostalgia alone. I thought it was a very good sequel though with a natural progression of the original story. When it was first announced i couldn't really think of a direction to take the film, but they did a good job. I also love that they left the ambiguity from the first in there.

The film raises a glass to the “strangers” and explicitly notes that a warrior like Decker must remain isolated to ensure the safety of others. In my own mind, I saw a parallel to the isolation of a soldier...the separation between what he knows and what those he protects don’t know. To me the film was deftly political.
