I liked this better than the first. The tone seemed to me more appropriate to the story than the first film. No surprise that Lawrence is terrific, but it's Tucci, Hoffman, and Harrelson that allow the film to be more interesting than you might expect. It's a killer supporting cast.
The pacing in the last 10-15 minutes is a noticeable problem for me. From the time the electrocution plan is hatched to the end of the film is too rushed…
