Very pretty sets and lovely detailed costumes, pity 3/4 of the script is pew pew pew. Thin plot with everyone being part of their world. Does everyone in that world speak all the languages? Good movie for watching fights 6/10.
Visually impressive, with consistently good fight sequences (including consistently on-point weapon work), however it just doesn’t have the emotional resonance of the first film. The world is interesting, but a little unbelievable (everyone knows everyone, everything and seemingly always in the right place). The fight scenes, while excellent and more believable than most, weren’t my reason for wanting to watch the sequel and therefore the film was a bit of a let down. I’ll watch Chapter Three to see how it pans out, but with less enthusiasm. 7/10.
