I liked it. There were a lot of funny scenes, a few that tried to be funny but failed, and some pretty “unique” action scenes, but overall I'd say it was a pretty good movie, particularly if you're into movies the whole family could go see.

Any thoughts?

I'm the enemy he requires to define him.
Soon or later, he'll bring me back to life again for another epic encounter of shouting about power levels and grimacing.

What's with people giving sequels high marks lately? Did the movie industry finally learn to make sequels right?

I really wasn't that impressed with the first movie. Would you say that this sequel is better, worse or similar to the first one?
Those were my two cents.

One of the taglines was that it's better in every aspect. That's pretty much true, though depending on how much you disliked the first, you might still dislike this one. Less conniving old men and a lot more craziness.

After only a few commercials I got sick of hearing that statue say “Boom! Boom! Fiyaaaah Powaaaaaaah!” It almost makes me not want to see the movie as a punishment.

Also, I really wasn't impressed with the first one either.

Believe it or not, that was actually changed in the film. And so was part of the Darth Vader bit.

I do find it interesting that this movie outsold Terminator during the first weekend. I'll probably skip it unless a good opportunity arises to see it with friends. The whole seeing it in 3D aspect is not so important to me and I'm willing to wait until it's on DVD.

I saw it with some friends a few days ago. The first one wasn't that bad. The second one was the same except for the “n't that” part.

It was better than Terminator Salvation, that's for damn sure.

I generally avoid anything with Ben Stiller. First one was okay, but it was still the annoyance of Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, no way I'm seeing the second one.
if I was a teapot I think I'd be orange.

From the preview I saw, it looks exactly the same as the first one. Which was an okay movie, but I'm not sure I'd want to see one exactly like it.

Is Robin Williams in this one? Because that's pretty much the deciding factor for me(hate that guy).
