“Let’s just get right to it. I was bored and I didn’t really get the point. True, going in I really had no idea how this would even work as a sequel, but I was curious. Of course I’ll watch Ewan McGregor in pretty much anything since his charisma can carry even the dullest of films (*cough*cough*PhantomMenace*cough*). The original movie had such an incendiary start and it just didn’t let up. Here we had more of a slow build that didn’t particularly seem to go anywhere. The first had some really iconic and creative imagery. Some of that was borrowed and referenced here, but we didn’t quite get anything new that was nearly as inventive. I mean, I guess there were only so many directions you could go with reformed heroin junkies, but this wasn’t quite the journey I wanted to take with them.
