    ★★★½

    I thought it was good but I never understood the overflowing love this movie got. Or why it was heralded as brilliant. I felt like I knew exactly where it was headed and I even think it ended on a worse note than it should have. It has a epilogue scene it just didn't need.

    I know I loved this movie. I'm not sure if I loved it even more than the first. I think I did.

    I loved this movie. It dealt with some wonderful stuff. Abel struggles to keep the legitimacy of himself and his business throughout the story. He's a badass too. So is his wife, but for different reasons. You could argue that Abel is a self righteous guy, but that quality also makes him admirable. He's genuinely trying to do the legal thing while everyone is trying to sway him. I loved his moral tug of war. I also love the way they portrayed New York. It felt like we were transported back to a different time.
