    It's a bit weaker than the previous entry, mostly because this time I really didn't care about the supporting characters and it ends a bit too cliffhangery for my taste, but not just compared to the low standards of other DTV part 7s it's still really good.

    If it has one flaw, it’s maybe that not every actor has…
