What didn't you like about the first one, Diego? The sequel stepped it up in almost every regard, so you might like the second one more, but I can't see you enjoying it much if you didn't care for the action in the first (which is definitely much better in the second, but still retains the same style).

I gave it a 4/10. Found it to be pretty run-of-the-mill. The action sequences didn't wow me all that much, and I thought the plot was kinda laughable. I'm not a big Keanu Reeves fan anyway, so there wasn't anything for me in that movie. Most importantly, I really don't care about how "realistically he handles a weapon" if I don't have any connection to the character.

I'd definitely recommend it. I think you'll like the second a lot more (the action is much more crisp, and the revenge plot is a whole lot better this time around), but you won't love it (especially since you're not a Keanu Reeves fan).

I mean, I don't dislike him all that much, but I can't take him seriously as an action star. Stuff like Point Break and Speed just comes across like a joke to me. I do like him in less conventional roles though, like The Neon Demon and A Scanner Darkly.
