Though I haven't seen the film, I have to admit I'm not really surprised by Jason's review. Sequels aren't always as good as the original. I am disappointed to read "Helen Mirren is wasted". I assumed (bad move on my part) that since she was in it the movie would have some credibility. Perhaps she didn't see the first NT.
I will see this movie anyway, perhaps next week, perhaps when it's out on DVD. If I see it next week I'll respond to Jason's thoughts re the resolution to Ed Harris's character. That does have my interest piqued.
Really bummed about Dame Helen.
