Filip Emanuel Stolpe’s review published on Letterboxd:
Fascinating. While I actually prefer the first film, I loved this too. This took another direction, for better or for worse. The visual effects are superb, even if they became a little too much. If the first film is fire, this is ice. It's smooth, and more controlled. It's professional and grand. It's also more human, which kind of negates the chaotic nature of the first film. That doesn't make it bad. It's phenomenal actually, just not in the way I'd hoped.
