  8. The ending is predictable never the less it is entertaining and quite enjoyable to watch better than the first one.

  9. The first movie is fun and so many magic but the sequel is a bit dark and so many holes on the plot but still entertaining. Still prefer the first one though the second one is more cohesive with a better plot.

  10. This is one of the sequels that are better than the original and I don’t understand critics at all. I find it hard to see anything bad about this movie. Critics are so wrong on this one.
