While i will agree that a sequel is just a way of getting ore cash outta a franchise some hae actually been very good and do break the trend of awfull
sequels, ill try and name some but im hung oer and its early so if i miss any please add.....
Leathal weapon 2-3-4 .........All kick ass great films
Die hard 2-3-4.......... once again all just as good
godfather 2 --- ok ill admit that this movie is actually part of the first movie in the book but with added extras it works.
Terminator 2 -- I actually prefere this to the first one,,,, though terminator 3 and the new one can kiss my ass
now for one of the best sequels in history...
STAR TREK 2 THE WRATH OF KAHN------- WOW well without this i doubt there would hae been anymore trek movies
Even with the next generation
STAR TREK FIRST CONTACT,,, again WOW, after generations i thought that was the end but this movie rocked
Beverly hills cop 2
ALIENS--- THough the first movie was one of a kind and a gritty horror this sequel took it to a new level with the marines and numerous aliens in epic
battles, but did unfortunatley pave the way for Alien 3 which we can never forgive.
The transporter 2 -- ok well it may be just another "look im jason statham Im british and a bit rough round the edges but i have a certain smoothness
about myself but check out my fight scenes and doesnt my profile look great while driving a car" project but if you want some fun some popcorn and
the ability to walk to the kitchen and get a drink without missing major plot points and spending the remainder of the movie sat like a foriegn
exchange student trying to look interested and attentive but really having no clue as to whats bloddy going on then this is for you.
Also before i forget we have jaws 2.... yes just before roy schnieder decided enough was enough and statisically as a police officer you had more
chance of being struck by lightining while riding a unicycle over a vat of dog sweat than you did of having more than two encounters with a supersize
super smart super bloody vengfull shark . Yes these first two films totally mastered the suspense angle with the music and the camera so 10 out of 10
for jaws and jaws 2 .
And last but not least ill have to submit some classic faves of mine . The dollars trillogy. yes old clint eastwood was masterfull here and aced the
role of "the man with no name" totally simple format for all three movies but each one stands in its own as a great western.........
For any martial arts fans out there as well we have
Police story 2
project A part 2
once upon a time in china
drunken master 2
in the line of duty 2
Ip man 2
the legend 2
and many more
But youre right that there a lot of # sequels as well off the top of my head ive got
dusk till dawn 2
starship troopers 2
teen wolf 2
i dont want to go on ut there many more but some still slip through the cracks as good sequels
