Well, it's not a complete loss, but it's another example of the rule that sequels tend not to be better than the originals. Style over substance? Well, possibly I guess, but it's more guilty of over egging the pudding with the number of stars present than anything else. Elmore Leonard may have written the book, but I can't help think the fact he doesn't show himself here is that he is all too aware that it's nothing but a poor rehash of the first movie. What made the first movie so great was the plot and characters, but this is way too familiar and nowhere near as entertaining. Has to be the biggest disappointment so far this year that I've seen.
