    ★★★½ Watched 22 Nov, 2014

    Yeah, I'm not really sure where the hate is coming from for this. If you've seen the first one or at least know of it's central conceit of pushing film noir tropes over the top to near exploitation levels, how is this not what it was aiming for?

It's a movie that the images and characters stand up better than the film itself, which is probably why it's such a successful merchandising juggernaut now.
